The Phone Pals program provides friendly phone calls to individuals who are homebound and isolated.  Callers will connect with individuals, provide companionship through phone conversations, and be able to provide information so the individuals can connect to resources in the community if needed. Calls will take place at a frequency that is agreed upon by the volunteer and the isolated individual. Training is provided.

To make the Phone Pals program safe, confidential and comfortable for the requestor, a background check is required.  Please fill out the information below, and you will be contacted for next steps.
