Here’s what some of our volunteers have to say!
”You get a sense of doing something when everything else is out of control. I’ve been disappointed that the level of need is so high, and our government hasn’t met that need.”
“I really enjoy hearing the client’s mood lift throughout the befriending call.”
– Joss has been volunteering as a befriender, making weekly phone calls to elders to help them cope with isolation and loneliness
“We’ve had a laugh and a joke and it’s a really nice atmosphere…I enjoy meeting new people, they are all so friendly, make you feel welcome. I’ve made a lot of new friends and really enjoy it.”
You treated me with compassion and now I’m giving something back!”Read Maruf’s Story
