Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston

  • 2 people are interested

JBBBS is seeking a Friend for Kendrick, an extremely friendly 59-year-old man who lives in Roslindale. Many of Kendrick’s friends have moved away recently, so he would be thrilled to have this opportunity to be more social and have a new 1:1 friendship with someone. Kendrick enjoys art-related activities, good conversation, and trying new coffee shops. He also loves nature, gardening, going on walks, reading, and listening to music! Kendrick was diagnosed with PTSD and struggles with his mental health at times. He would be an amazing friend to someone who is a good listener and enjoys making connections with others.

A one-year commitment is required. It would also be helpful if Kendrick had a friend with a car who could pick him up to go on outings when matches resume in-person meetups. Our amazing Clinical Match Specialists will provide match support to help your friendship succeed!

JEWISH AND NON-JEWISH VOLUNTEERS WELCOME!
