Do you want to make a difference in a Seniors life while you learn about another culture, create and build friendships and make ever-lasting memories? We are seeking individuals who have caring hearts, compassionate and willing to make 15 minute weekly/monthly wellness calls to a senior in need.

How We Serve: Volunteers aged 21 or older assist isolated senior citizens living in the San Antonio area to provide companionship and basic needs. It's as simple as a phone call or as personal as a home visit.

3 ways for you to volunteer:

  1. Contact a senior by phone. (Wellness check)
  2. Visit a senior in person (Once you're comfortable, you can visit your senior in their home)
  3. Assist with our group projects such as Deployments (Fan delivery, senior socials etc) which benefit our seniors

  • Complete clearance requirements (3 VIRTUS trainings, Criminal Background Check, and Motor Vehicle Release Form.)
  • Document meetings with Senior and turn in log to Adopt-A-Senior Program.
