The Community Companions Program (CCP) provides one-to-one companionship and assistance in daily living to people with mental illnesses.
The companion visits the client at least once a week, for a minimum of three months, participating in mutually agreeable activities. Together they find new social groups, learn about community resources, and share in a supportive friendship.
Volunteers will receive training, which will include an orientation to mental illness and mental health, an overview of community resources and practice in successful communication skills.
Upon completion of training, volunteers will have the opportunity to share skills and interests with someone who needs social support as a supplement to mental health services.
Please call Marissa Ferrito 973-334-3496 ext. 113 for more information.
