About

Spend time with another adult in the Phoenixville area, enjoying activities like meeting for coffee, taking a walk, or just chatting. In as little as 4 hours a month, you can make a difference in the life of someone who may be feeling lonely or isolated. This volunteer opportunity is sponsored by Compeer Chester County (PA), which pairs up community volunteers with persons living with mental health challenges. Individuals who themselves are in recovery are encouraged to volunteer.

Volunteers receive training to prepare them to meet the individual they'll be matched with. Based on mutual interests and location, each volunteer is paired up with someone who has expressed interest in meeting a friend (and has been referred to Compeer by a mental health professional). Compeer staff facilitate an introductory meeting. Staff provide ongoing support.

Compeer also sponsors group events throughout the year where all friends and volunteers can all come together (picnics, bowling, etc.). Learn more by visiting www.compeerchesco.org or calling 610-436-4445.
