Help build social connections among older adults and persons with disabilities experiencing isolation and loneliness. This unique one-on-one volunteer experience gives you the opportunity to personally connect, engage and advocate. The commitment is big but the rewards are huge - not just for your older friend but for you as a volunteer as well. Weekly visits are scheduled when it works best for you and your friend.

Requirements include: need to be 18 (or volunteer with a parent), a year-long a commitment, must be age 18 or older, submit application materials and attend volunteer training, and a pass background check. We look forward to assisting you in making an impact on someone's life.
