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

We could all benefit from a little more connection in life; Become a Social Call friendly visitor in Marin County.

Volunteers find their visits highly rewarding and many develop long-term relationships with their older adult match. This connection is based on the idea that both the volunteer and participant have much to give to one another, ensuring a reciprocal bond. We encourage volunteers to embrace the experience and stories that come with aging, as it’s sure to give you a unique perspective!

Social Call volunteers:

Receive training in interpersonal and listening skills.

Are matched with an older adult to whom you will provide friendly companionship and a compassionate presence.

Visit with their match each week during a time that works for both of you. You can provide a visit in-person or over the phone!

Bilingual volunteers encouraged to apply.

For more information, please contact Casey O'Neill at co'neill@covia.org or 415-535-7741.
