AmeriCorps Seniors

Senior Companion Program

Now more than ever seniors are in need of a friend. They long for someone to talk to, engage in their favorite hobby with, and even help them get groceries. If you are looking to make a difference in the life of a senior in our community, considering join us in the Senior Companion Program. Senior Companions are independent people over the age of 55 who are looking to add some purpose to their days and are willing to reach out to their fellow seniors who are in need of someone’s help and time. They dedicate compassionate service in making a difference and making a friend at the same time. As a member of our program there is also a small hourly (tax exempt) stipend as well as meal and mileage reimbursement to help offset the costs of volunteering.

Come join our team and together we can bring happiness to the seniors in our area that need our help!
