About

Ethos is a nonprofit organization that provides services to elders that increase their independence, dignity, and well-being. Ethos is looking for volunteers to be Friendly Visitors. Spend an hour a week visiting with an elder in his/her home. Talk, go for walks, become a FRIEND. Ethos is looking for volunteers who speak Russian to visit with an elder. Maybe you are not fluent in Russian? That's ok! Hone your skills by visiting with and engaging in conversations in Russian. The elders we serve through the Friendly Visiting program are typically very isolated and a language barrier only increases their isolation. Your weekly visits will brighten their day and improve their mental well-being. Make a new friend and sign-up today!
