The Friendship Project℠

Connecting community volunteers with individuals supported by Advocates. 

We're looking for volunteers to take an active role in the lives of people we support. You might make a weekly check-in phone call, go bowling once a month, or help organize a closet—you and your friend will decide together! Volunteering with The Friendship Project℠ is a great way to support a community member and enrich your life.
