About

Seniors in need of a friend!

Over 50 people waiting for a friend in ALL areas of Erie County. Friendship can change a person's life. Good things happen when you have a friend. Friends listen. They share. Friends are the best kind of medicine for someone who's striving for good mental health. Through Compeer you can be a caring friend to someone. It can be as simple as going for a walk, seeing a movie, or just picking up the phone. It can take as little as an hour a week. Compeer matches volunteers with seniors ages 60 and over. Volunteer training and screening offered. Please contact sarah@compeerbuffalo.org if you would like more information.
