Tangram serves individuals with disabilities, many of whom were at risk for social isolation prior to the pandemic. Now, a year into the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Tangram is seeking ways to ensure that our clients can still build social connections and natural supports. Working with our behavior team, we are identifying clients who can benefit from virtual friendships until it is safe to build in-person friendships.
We are seeking individuals who can commit to regular Zoom calls with Tangram clients as a way to increase their social connection and decrease isolation and loneliness. We will do our best to match clients and volunteers based on similar interests and schedules. The frequency of the calls will vary depending on clients and volunteers, but volunteers should expect to commit to two calls per month for about 30 minutes.
Volunteers will receive training and support from Tangram employees to make the calls a success. There may be an opportunity to transition meetings from virtual to face-to-face depending on evolving health and safety guidelines and the preferences of the clients and volunteers involved.
