Covia Communities

Lizzy and Richard
Lizzy and Richard are a Social Call match!

We could all benefit from a little more human connection!

Social Call volunteers meet with older adults for weekly social visits. Volunteers provide companionship, a listening ear, and their company. In-person matches are available in San Francisco, Alameda, Marin and Sonoma counties and by-phone nationwide. Matches are based on location, availability, and shared interests.

Social Call volunteers find that making a visit to an older adult in their community is quite rewarding and many develop long-term friendships with their older adult match.

Social Call volunteers:

  • Receive training and ongoing support
  • Are matched with an adult 60 years or older
  • Visit with their match for an hour each week for 6 months or longer

Bilingual volunteers encouraged to apply. Volunteer training scheduled regularly.

Make a senior's day with a friendly visit!

Mission Statement

Covia promotes positive aging by cultivating healthy and engaged communities with a continuum of innovative services that actively support intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being.

Description

Growth, Compassion, Innovation, Commitment, Service. The core outreach programs of Covia Community Services - Senior Resources, Market Day, Well Connected , and Social Call- each address unmet needs of seniors. They provide essentials such as emergency financial assistance, affordable produce, and links to critical services. Covia volunteers also serve in our communities, from Pacific Grove to Santa Rosa, engaging residents and staff by providing companionship, care, and support. The programs also provide intangibles that may prove to be more essential such as affording these adults an improved quality of life, a sense of community, the joy of knowing they are cared for, and a renewed purpose.
