Help combat the deep isolation felt by our senior community during this pandemic. Many senior citizens have had little to no contact with many people since the beginning of COVID.

Become an advocate for a senior citizen or incapacitated adult in Floyd County. As an advocate, you will become a companion to an assigned person and will help them navigate their personal and medical decisions. We encourage our volunteers to advocate for their assigned person the way they would a close family member in similar circumstances.
