Friends in Action is a network of volunteers throughout the area who are matched with people who need help.
We ask that our volunteers attend a basic orientation and fill out a registration form. Orientations may be arranged with the Volunteer Coordinator at any time. Basic orientation takes about one hour.
All of Friends in Action’s services are delivered by volunteers and are free of charge. Donations are always needed and appreciated and may be sent directly to Friends in Action, but they are not required to receive services.
Friends in Action volunteers are kind and caring people from all walks of life and are all ages. They help with rides on their way to work, or they may be retired. They are in high school and help with yard work or chores or at the Senior Center. They are shut-in and disabled themselves and may telephone a lonely shut-in to check on their well-being or to have a chat.
Volunteer services are set up on an individual basis and are as varied as the people whom we serve. Volunteers are good neighbors, helping their neighbors.
