Would you like to form a new connection and help combat isolation? Volunteers are needed to socialize with older adults or adults with disabilities, in-person or by phone, weekly. Schedules are flexible.

The participants are connected to Fairfax County's Department of Family Services case managers, and many of them receive home delivered meals.

Volunteer mealtime visitors are also needed, and they should bring their own meal or snack, at lunch or dinnertime.

Schedules are flexible and mutually determined by the recipient and volunteer.
Especially needed in the Alexandria region.

Bilingual volunteers are needed, too!

Go to bit.ly/FXVSVOL for more information on Volunteer Solutions and bit.ly/VSSocialVisitor to sign up directly.

Volunteer Solutions is a Partnership of Fairfax County's Department of Family Services and Neighborhood & Community Services.
