KONOCTI SENIOR SUPPORT INC

Konocti Senior Support, Inc.

Konocti Senior Support, Inc. offers the Senior Peer Counseling program where senior volunteers are trained to provide counseling to isolated seniors struggling with depression or anxiety. With the massive increase in seniors isolated through sheltering in place, we are looking for more volunteers to be trained to provide counseling over the telephone. Recruitment, training, and ongoing supervision of volunteers will take place either online or via telephone. Volunteers do not need prior experience in counseling, but they do have to be 55 years or older, and willing to learn new skills and join our team. Volunteers must be residents of Lake County, California. If you’re interested, please visit our website konoctiseniorsupport.com for more information and to apply online.
