Be a Friendly Visitor to a Lonely Senior!

Open Opportunity

About

Do you love hearing life stories from the elderly? Do you enjoy spreading cheer?

The Friendly Visitor program is our companionship program for Meals on Wheels recipients all across Bexar County, specifically founded to combat isolation and depression often found in homebound individuals. A Friendly Visitor volunteer is matched with one of our clients in need of companionship and visits with them for 1-3 hours per week. Scheduling is entirely flexible - visit in the mornings, evenings, even weekends! Although we've had somewhat similar programs in the past, this is a brand-new program here at Meals on Wheels and we're looking for great volunteers to join us in this endeavor to serve our clients in this capacity.
