Friendly Connections

Friendly Connections

The Friendly Connections program is designed to provide isolated individuals (seniors and those with intellectual/developmental disabilities) in the Rochester area with a volunteer for 10-15 minute “check ins.”  The Friendly Connections volunteers aim to convey that someone cares by providing comfort and companionship through contacts via phone or video calls.
