Compeer Phone Friends

Save to Favorites

Cleveland County Mental Health Association

  • 2 people are interested

Please Note: We are based in Cleveland County, North Carolina, and are only accepting volunteers living in the area. If there is another Compeer affiliate program closer to your location, we will connect you with them.

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).
