Are you looking for a way to support older adults in your community?
Social Call volunteers are paired with an older adult for weekly friendly visits. As a Social Call volunteer you'll provide social support and friendship, connecting with the same older adult once a week (in-person or by phone).
Social Call volunteers find that being a Friendly Visitor is a super rewarding experience and many develop long-term friendships with their older adult match.
Social Call volunteers:
Receive training and ongoing support
Are matched with an adult 60 years or older
Form a friendship with the participant and commit to one call per week for at least 6 months.
Are background checked; Cost covered by Social Call
Volunteer training scheduled regularly. For more information, please contact Casey O'Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-535-7741.

Covia promotes and cultivates healthy communities for positive aging through an innovative continuum that actively supports the whole person.
Growth, Compassion, Innovation, Commitment, Service. The core outreach programs of Covia Community Services - Senior Resources, Market Day, Well Connected , and Social Call- each address unmet needs of seniors. They provide essentials such as emergency financial assistance, affordable produce, and links to critical services. Covia volunteers also serve in our communities, from Pacific Grove to Santa Rosa, engaging residents and staff by providing companionship, care, and support. The programs also provide intangibles that may prove to be more essential such as affording these adults an improved quality of life, a sense of community, the joy of knowing they are cared for, and a renewed purpose.
