About Compeer of Johnson County

Location:

2701 Rochester Avenue, Iowa City, IA 52245, US

Mission Statement

Compeer's mission is to reduce the loneliness and isolation of adults receiving mental health treatment by developing structured friendships with trained community volunteers. We envision a day when all communities embrace individuals and their families living with mental health challenges.

Description

You and your new friend will spend about an hour together once a week (or 2 hours every two weeks). We need volunteers of all ages, minimum 23 years old. Training, ongoing education and support are provided by the Compeer staff.

Compeer volunteers make a positive difference in someone’s life. Your friendship provides a sense of connection and companionship for yourself and for your match friend. Each person has gained a new friend with whom to enjoy and explore different aspects of life, learn from, and grow with.


"When I am out with my friend, I feel I am part of what is happening in a busy world and I am not alone. I see other people together and I no longer feel different because I am with my volunteer friend."
- Participant

"I would highly recommend Compeer as a volunteer opportunity. It provides situations for you to learn so many things too!"
