FriendshipWorks

  • 9 people are interested

FriendshipWorks is looking for retired volunteers who want to make a meaningful contribution to their communities by helping a neighbor in need.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities in Boston and Brookline and offer flexible hours of service including:

Friendly Visiting: Friendly Visitors develop one-on-one relationships with older or disabled adults. They visit once a week for about an hour each visit - sharing stories and thoughts, going on outings and helping with light tasks. Over time, both people grow and learn from each other, often becoming great friends.

Medical Escorts: Medical Escorts accompany older and disabled adults to and from important medical appointments. This is a flexible opportunity and no car is needed.

Walking Buddies: Accompany a senior on walks around their neighborhood for about an hour each week - providing both companionship and exercise.

One-time Assists: One Time Assistants help with elders' occasional needs such as gift-shopping, packing for a move, or visiting a relative.

You can apply online to be a volunteer here:
