Recruiting Organization: Compeer of Greater Buffalo

Every year, 1 in 5 people experience a mental health condition. Social support is vital to one’s mental health recovery, but unfortunately many people lack a solid network of friends and family as well as the resources to access and build community. Compeer strives to reduce loneliness and isolation across Erie County by pairing individuals (ages 6+) in need of support, with caring volunteers. These 1:1 matches spend quality time together through regular conversation and activities such as getting coffee, going for walks, or participating in activities. Volunteers are asked to dedicate just 4 hours each month for one year to their Compeer friend. If you believe that you could be a friend to someone who is striving for mental wellness and you are interested in volunteering or learning more about Compeer, please call 716-883-3331 x308 or fill out an application on our website at CompeerBuffalo.org today!
