Please Note: We are based in Cleveland County, North Carolina, and are only accepting volunteers living in the area.

Phone Friends is an alternative volunteer opportunity to our typical Compeer one-to-one friendship. Both for those who are unable to commit to four hours a month of volunteer service and in response to COVID-19 isolation, Phone Friends volunteers make weekly phone calls to individuals who are waiting to be matched in a one-to-one Compeer friendship or prefer telephone communication.

In order to become a Phone Friend, please first submit an application through our website (https://clevelandcountymha.org/compeer-volunteer-application) or submit a completed paper application (https://static1.squarespace.com/static/531f7d00e4b0e82167e9c2cc/t/5ee65df9095ea02582e9b52d/1592155644329/Volunteer+Application+revised+6.14.20.pdf) to PO Box 623 Shelby, NC 28151 or fax to 704-448-2016.
