Become a Friendly Visitor!

Open Opportunity

About

Friendly Visitors is a volunteer-based program to combat loneliness and isolation in our Meals on Wheels clients by providing companionship and friendship. Loneliness affects at least 55% of all seniors nationwide and can cause up to a 29% increase in premature mortality.

 

Volunteers are personally matched with one of our clients based on personality, life experience, interests, etc. and spend about 1-3 hours a week with them doing such things as playing games, taking a walk, or chatting over coffee or tea. Schedules are flexible and can include visiting in the evenings and on the weekends. All clients live in the Bexar County area.
