Friends in Action offers volunteer services to seniors and disabled adults throughout Hancock County. Our mission is to offer free services to elderly and disabled residents of Hancock County, so that they can live independently, with dignity and a strong quality of life. Services include transportation, friendly visits, help with chores and telephone reassurance.
Volunteering can fit into any lifestyle, whether retired, working full-time, young or old. Some volunteers give rides as part of their commute to work, or help with errands when they are doing their own. We need volunteers throughout the area. At the moment, we have particular need for volunteers in Ellsworth, Trenton, Hancock, Sullivan and Gouldsboro.
Friends in Action offers friendly visits to the lonely and shut-in; visitors stop by once a week for an hour or telephone to check on well-being. This volunteering requires an on-going commitment to an individual. For specific dates and times, please call 664-6016 or email
