BE A GREAT NEIGHBOR - Become a Companion Today!
LSS Companions are volunteers (18+) who are trained by Lutheran Social Service of MN to support older adults in their community. Companions provide dependable transportation to activities, meaningful friendship, and the assistance older adults need to remain living as independently as possible.
Volunteers make a difference by providing weekly visits that keep older adults feeling well - both physically and emotionally.
Benefits include: a stipend, mileage reimbursement, recognition, training, along with making a lasting impact on an older adult in their communities.
We invite you to join us to make a difference in your community - just contact us to get started and learn more.
