Volunteer Friends are the cornerstone of UPLIFT's Be A Friend Program. The goal of UPLIFT is to leverage community support through volunteerism and provide those experiencing homelessness and those newly housed with individualized support in the form of social interactions at least twice a month.

Volunteer Friends meet with their Neighbor at least once a month in person over breakfast or lunch to get to know each other and calls their Neighbor at least once a month to talk on the phone and check in with them. UPLIFT provides an orientation training and ongoing support from the Program Manager.
