Description (Service) Matches volunteers with an isolated senior or an adult living with disabilities.

Clients of the friendly visiting program provide information about their interests and background in order to match the client and volunteer interests for a successful visiting relationship.

The visits will generally be in the client's home, but the volunteer can also schedule social phone calls.

The purpose of this program is to provide socialization and opportunities to interact with others.

During the months of September-June, clients can also participate in the Adopt A Grandparent Pen Pal program in partnership with local school children
