Telephone Friends

Our social workers will thoughtfully match volunteers and older adults for these friendly connections, with the volunteer calling each week at a mutually agreed upon time. Relationships build while discussing the news of the day, life experiences, hobbies/interests and more during weekly telephone calls. Social workers offer ongoing support to volunteers.
