The ElderFriends program matches isolated elders with volunteers. The Rainier Beach community has a shortage of volunteers for the program and quite a few elders on a waiting list for Elder Friends. The program is an amazing opportunity to connect with the community. Many times the elders in Rainier Beach have lived here for most of their lives and have stories to tell!
- Provide companionship, outreach and advocacy for one isolated older adult in your community.
- Visit at least twice monthly and maintain weekly contact.
- Share in the joys of a mutually-rewarding friendship!
Volunteers must pass screening requirements and attend a training session.
