Volunteer with or Refer a Neighbor to FriendshipWorks

FriendshipWorks is a volunteer based non-profit organization with the mission of reducing loneliness and isolation in the older adult population. Loneliness and isolation in older adults seriously impact their physical and mental health with dire consequences. Reach out to the information on the attached flyer to refer to adults 60+ years of age or 55+ if they are visually or auditorily impaired.

You can also volunteer. The flagship program is Friendly Visiting through which we pair older adults and volunteers in their neighborhoods to spend time together for 1 or 2 hours a week. There are also other programs such as Medical Escorts, Friendly Helping,MusicWorks and PetPals. All of the programs are free of cost and more information can be found on the attached flyer.
