The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Provide socialization and companionship to someone who can no longer care for themselves and has no family or little emotional support in their lives.
Make monthly visits and be a friendly face for someone who is living in a nursing home, group home, supportive housing, or state facility.
Clients in this program may have difficulty communicating or relating to the world the same way we do. But, you can remember your client on her birthday, listen to music with her, take her out to the park, and connect with her in a way that shows she is not forgotten.
We provide training. We match you with someone that fits your interest and availabililty.
