Friendly Visitors

Be part of a friendship that makes a difference.

Relationships and personal connections are vital at any age. They enrich our lives, share in our joys and help us through difficult times.

The JFS Friendly Visitor program is designed to cultivate friendship and combat social isolation. Trained volunteers are matched with older adults living in the community based on similar needs and interests. JFS provides ongoing support for the volunteers.

Friendly Visitor volunteers make a one-year commitment to visit with their older friend once a week.  Examples of visits include tea and conversation in an older adult’s home, a visit to a coffee shop, sharing an exercise class at the senior center, and attending a JFS Lunch and Learn together.

Are you ready to pursue a mutually rewarding relationship? Volunteers are needed—sign up to become a JFS Friendly Visitor today!
