Covia Communities


COVID-19 has further isolated older adults in our communities, you can make a difference from the safety & comfort of your own home!

Social Call volunteers visit with a local older adult weekly for social visits. Volunteers provide companionship, a listening ear, and their company. Who you are paired with is based on location, availability, and shared interests. Social Call volunteers find that making a visit to an older adult in their community is quite rewarding and many develop long-term friendships with the older adult they are paired with.

During COVID-19 affected times, all visits will be virtual. Visits will be conducted over the phone, or with video calls for those older adults who have access. We will transition to in-person visits when the pandemic has passed.

Social Call volunteers:

  • Receive training and ongoing support
  • Are matched with an adult 60 years or older
  • Visit with their match for an hour each week for 6 months or longer

Volunteer training scheduled regularly.

Bilingual volunteers strongly encouraged to apply! All adults aged 18 yrs and older welcome to apply.

Mission Statement

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.
