Heart in Hands

Come volunteer to be a friendly visitor to a senior in Los Angeles.

Seeking a volunteer who is kind, sensitive and a good listener.

The senior is blind and very independent. She recently lost all of her vision so she is navigating life in a new way and would love having a new friend. She loves talking about anything and looking forward to the companionship!
