This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for someone looking to make a difference in the life of a senior.

ConnectingWithU is a free, telephone reassurance service that provides emotional support for Seniors in Broward County, offering an individualized, emotionally safe space for Seniors to express their feelings and concerns while staying interconnected to others from the comfort of their own home.

Studies show that Seniors disconnected from regular human interaction can feel isolated, depressed, require increased medical services or even potential institutional placement. A caring call from a ConnectingWithU Phone Pal can help prevent these feelings or results and make a positive change in the lives of those involved in this special program.

Our CWU Phone Pal volunteers reach out by phone regularly to these seniors to offer a friendly check-in and an opportunity to feel connected to the community beyond their front door.
