Many people, as they get older, find themselves with fewer regular and positive interactions with other people. Family, friends, and social connections that once brought a sense of purpose and connection can leave us feeling empty by their loss. Whether it be loss through death or divorce, or friends moving away, we have all felt disconnected at some point in time.

Silver Connect is a new program that offers older adults a chance to connect with friendly volunteers for emotional support, reassurance and opportunities to share life's experience and to feel engaged and connected through sincere, lively and heartfelt conversation.

Currently we are looking for volunteers for the Silver Connect program. If you are interested in reaching out with support to someone who may be lonely, we want to hear from you! You may be the person someone is looking for, and this may be just what you are looking for.


Upcoming training date is January 25, 2023 from 9 AM to 3 PM. Please contact Kelley Gallant, kgallant@oasisnet.org or 210-236-5954.
