weekly phone buddies for isolated seniors

We provide weekly phone buddies for homebound, isolated, or shut-in seniors. Each senior is matched 1:1 with their own trained volunteer phone buddy for consistent, ongoing connection and conversation. We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area, with most of our volunteers and clients located in California; we also serve seniors anywhere in the U.S.
