The Friendly Visiting program matches volunteers with homebound seniors for weekly home visits.
The program offers both seniors and volunteers an opportunity to cultivate long lasting and meaningful friendships. For volunteers, it opens the door to learning from a senior's life experiences, and benefiting from the personal satisfaction derived from community service. For the senior, friendly visiting provides a sense of connection to the outside world, something to look forward to, and a sense of contributing to society through sharing their wisdom, knowledge, talents and stories with a new friend.
There are Friendly Visiting programs throughout the City. All programs are under DFTA-funded case management and home delivered meals programs, in partnership with Citymeals on Wheels.
Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
