LBFE's Visiting Volunteer Program is our most impactful program that gives volunteers the opportunity to build a lasting and meaningful friendship with an isolated older adult. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in being paired up 1:1 with an older adult to build a reciprocal, lasting friendship.
All volunteers will be required to complete a one-time volunteer orientation, clear a background check, and attend an additional training for this program specifically. The training is no longer than 1 hour and it is done virtually!
If you are interested in participating in this program, please email Debbie Uchida at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up for an LBFE volunteer orientation here: https://forms.gle/ bvFHryrwwznmDm319.
