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.

The Mental Health Association's mission is to create and promote education, advocacy and support for individuals and families affected by mental illness. We work tirelessly to eliminate the "stigma" of mental illness and create an informed community of citizens who will defend and support the rights of those persons impacted by mental illness.
ü We are continually fostering and expanding our professional and personal relationships in the community through our programs, volunteers, board members, consumers and families, including collaborative efforts with other agencies and community organizations to meet our objectives.
