This opportunity is available only to residents of Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas Counties, Florida.

Physically distanced doesn’t need to mean socially isolated.

TelePals keep us socially connected through telephone reassurance. Weekly (or more frequent) calls say: "You have a friend who cares." Participate in friendly chats on a regular schedule that’s convenient to you. One phone call could be the start of a lifelong friendship, and it’s no charge!

Feel more connected YOURSELF while connecting to others in the Tampa Bay area.

Call 813.819.0725 or go to https://seniorsinservice.org/telepals/ and sign up to make or receive calls today!
