About

Compeer volunteers bring the healing power of friendship to men and women in the Greater Phoenixville area who live with mental health disorders. This is a very flexible volunteer opportunity, requiring only 4 hours per month.

Here's how Compeer works: Volunteers are interviewed and receive training. Each volunteer is matched with an adult of the same gender, based on mutual preferences, geographic location, and other factors. An introductory meeting is held. After that, you start getting to know your friend, spending time together in activities you agree on. 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. We sponsor a few group activities throughout the year. Get a complete picture by visiting www.compeerchesco.org.
