Mission Statement

Compeer friendship is as simple as going for a walk, having a conversation, going to a movie or picking up the phone. Through Compeer, a volunteer can help change someone's life for the better and it's just as simple as being a friend. A Compeer volunteer is a man or woman who shares a friendship with someone socially isolated by mental illness and economically disadvantaged. He or she is a sensitive person who understands and accepts someone who may feel misunderstood or rejected. Compeers spend at least four hours a month together, seeking to have weekly contact wherever possible. Compeer matches are based on mutual preferences, and volunteers receive comprehensive training.



To enhance and support recovery, wellness, and a sense of belonging for our friends and neighbors living with mental illness.
Friendships and supportive relationships as a key element for the recovery, support, and wellness of those we serve. The engagement and collaboration of our community through our network of partnerships, volunteers, supporters and mental health professionals.
