To advance the social skills of people in mental health recovery and to help them reintegrate back into their communities.
Compeer matches volunteers from the community with members in need of friendship. Our volunteers spend four hours a month with a member who is in stable mental health recovery engaging in activities they both enjoy. Our matches will simply go for a walk or out for a cup of coffee but these activities make a huge impact on our members lives. Volunteering with us helps our members feel less lonely and isolated.
Compeer has also added a similar service for veterans. It's called CompeerCorps. If you know a veteran in need of a friendship or a veteran who is interested in volunteering with other veterans, we are waiting to hear from them.
