Covia Communities

Woman talking on the phone

Adults over 65 are at increased risk of social isolation from the impacts of COVID-19 in their communities- we are here to make a difference today!

Social Call matches volunteers to call an older adult (or two) once a week for about 30 minutes. We all benefit from better social connections! We provide an avenue for you and older adults to grow wonderful relationships through swapping stories, asking interesting questions of one another, and more. This role is highly convenient, flexible, and rewarding!

Time Commitment: 6-month minimum, 30 min/week plus a brief monthly report.

Qualifications: Enjoy speaking with older adults, comfortable talking on phone, background check, attend virtual volunteer training.

Bilingual volunteers are also encouraged to apply but everyone is welcome and much appreciated!
