Everyone needs a friend.
Miracle Friends is a phone buddy program for neighbors experiencing homelessness. Volunteer from anywhere in the world, in a way that fits into your schedule.

All 1:1 communications between volunteers and unhoused friends take place via phone calls and texts using Google Voice or Dialpad (i.e., not your personal number). The rough time commitment is an hour a week, flexible based on your schedule. This includes:

Weekly 1:1 calls and/or texts with your unhoused friend

The role of the volunteer is to offer general companionship and support. Each volunteer is supported by a mentor and, when possible, each unhoused friend is supported by a caseworker.
