Give someone a few minutes of your time........and see how wonderful you both will feel!!!!!!!!!!!
There are many seniors and Veterans in our community who could benefit for a weekly visit from someone like YOU! An hour or two of your time to sit and talk, play cards and/or go to the grocery store can make a difference in their life, only imagine what it could do for you!
The Agency on Aging's RSVP Volunteer Program is proud to offer supports to seniors and Veterans throughout the greater New Haven through it's Friendly Visitor Program.
Amazingly only a few hours of your time can make a world of difference to another person who is isolated, alone or who can't drive any longer.
