Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Compeer Program matches adults who are living with mental illness with community volunteers to create intentional friendships with the goal of reducing isolation and loneliness.
"Compeer" means a companion who is also a peer or equal. Loneliness, failure, fear and loss of self-esteem are universal experiences of those who suffer from mental illnesses. A caring friend can help to restore some joy and hope to a life that is often empty of both. Compeer provides a fun and flexible volunteer opportunity that fits into your current lifestyle. You can choose to spend time with someone your own age, or older or younger than yourself. As a volunteer, you will meet with your friend on a regular basis at mutually convenient times to share activities you enjoy. Our matched friends go to movies, sporting events, shopping or out for coffee and a chat. Through the gift of your friendship, you will become a significant part of another's life and see the results of that effort almost immediately.
