Friendly Connections

Friendly Connections is an innovative service for aging adults. Friendly Connections offers a variety of in-person and telephone-based services designed for the aging population. Friendly Connections is a great way for homebound and aging adults to continue to socialize, stimulate educational interests and stay connected with the community. 

There are even volunteer opportunities available that can easily fit into your schedule! Whether you are looking to have a weekly telephone check-in call, learn a language or exercise with others through a teleconference course, Friendly Connections has something for you!


Friendly Caller Program
Friendly Connections' Telephone Groups offer an assortment of educational, social and enrichment opportunities for those who choose to "meet" over the phone.  Conducted entirely over the telephone, groups cover a wide variety of topic designed for older adults interested in continuing their education, stay social and remain connected to their communities. 

Friendly Caller Program
Volunteers make phone calls to home-bound or isolated members of the community. By providing support and companionship, this service assists older adults to remain in their own homes and to live independently.


Friendly Visitor Program
Volunteers are matched up with older and sometimes home-bound individuals for one-on-one weekly visits. The purpose of these visits is to provide companionship and support.

Volunteer Training
Friendly Connections relies heavily on volunteers interested in enriching the lives of others through discussion, conversation and companionship. All volunteers receive orientation, ongoing support and resources pertaining to their volunteer activity. Schedules are flexible.
