Help a Veteran in mental health recovery

Compeer is looking for anyone who can volunteer and help someone recover from a mental illness by providing friendship

Compeer friendship is as simple as going for a walk, having a conversation, going to a movie or picking up the phone. Through Compeer, a volunteer can help change someone's life for the better and it's just as simple as being a friend.

A Compeer volunteer is a man or woman who shares a friendship with a Veteran who is socially isolated by mental illness and economically disadvantaged. He or she is a sensitive person who understands and accepts someone who may feel misunderstood or rejected. Compeers spend at least four hours a month together, seeking to have weekly contact wherever possible.

Compeer matches are based on mutual preferences, and volunteers receive comprehensive training.

Compeer serves Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties.

Volunteer Application can be sent to you by calling the Compeer office at 610.541.0790 or by emailing Olga Antonyuk at Olga@Compeerfriends.org.
