Covia Communities

Now more than ever we are looking for creative social connections. Social Call provides increased opportunities for social engagement by matching volunteers and adults 60+ for weekly one-on-one visits by phone or video conference. Visits usually last 30-45 minutes.

Social Call friendships are based on the idea that the volunteer and participant both have much to give to one another, ensuring a reciprocal bond. We encourage volunteers to embrace the experience and stories that come with aging as it's sure to give you a unique perspective! In addition, you'll receive training and ongoing support from Social Call staff. We ask that volunteers commit to their match for at least six months though longer commitments are encouraged and welcomed.


For more information contact Casey O'Neill at 415-535-7741 or coneill@frontporch.net.


Social Call is a Front Porch Community Services program​. There is no cost to volunteer or participate.
