Friendly Visitors Program: We are seeking individuals to join our Friendly Visitor Program and help make a difference in the lives of our home bound older adult population. Volunteers will be matched with an older adult and provide friendly companionship and their compassionate presence. This is a flexible volunteer opportunity- all Friendly Visitor visits are scheduled during a convenient time for the volunteer and their match.

Because of the COVID outbreak, we are interviewing volunteer candidates for our volunteer roles by phone or on-line only. Please contact cpadovani@nssc.org and we will get the volunteer enrollment process started so that you will be ready to begin your new role with the North Shore Senior Center once our doors re-open.
