Having just one friend who cares about you makes all the difference. Compeer volunteers bring the healing power of friendship to men and women in mental health recovery. This is a flexible and fun opportunity to make a new friend while helping someone else.
How it works: Volunteers are interviewed and receive training. Each volunteer is matched with an adult of the same gender, based on mutual preferences. An introductory meeting is held. After that, you start getting to know your friend, spending time together doing whatever the two of you choose. Compeer friends can meet for coffee, see movies, take a walk, attend sporting events, or just visit and enjoy each other's company. Compeer staff provide ongoing support and sponsor group activities throughout the year. Get a complete picture by visiting www.compeerchesco.org.
