About

Spend time with another person and have fun! In as little as 4 hours a month, you can make a difference in the life of someone who may be feeling lonely or isolated.

The Compeer program in Chester County, PA, has a long history of matching adults in recovery from mental health challenges in one-to-one friendships with volunteers.

Volunteers receive training to prepare them to meet the person they'll be matched with. Based on mutual interests and location, each volunteer is matched with someone who has expressed interest in meeting a friend (and has been referred to Compeer by a mental health professional). Compeer staff facilitate an introductory meeting. Staff provide ongoing support. We also sponsor group events throughout the year where all friends and volunteers can all come together. Learn more by visiting www.compeerchesco.org or calling 610-436-4445.
