The Senior Companion Program is a free service through which senior volunteers provide assistance and friendship to elderly and adult individuals who are homebound with special needs and generally live alone. Taking care of simple chores, providing transportation, and offering connections to the outside world helps these individuals to live independently.
Volunteers must be at least 55 years of age and enjoy helping people in need. To receive a volunteer stipend, you must meet income eligibility requirements.
