Do you remember the song
"You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story 4?
That simple title describes the type of person our isolated older clients need: a friend, a buddy, a pal: someone who checks on them, prays for them, helps them, or finds others who can if they can't.
There's no set job description for our "Be a Buddy" program. We're simply looking for people who care, for those who have time to invest in the life of someone who's lonely.
We'll run a background check, of course, give you some tips and training, and support you in any way we can. But mostly you'll be free to be yourself, to be a friend.
Thinking about being a friend to an older adult in Cabarrus or Rowan counties of North Carolina? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to talk to one of our staff about the possibilities!
Two are better than one...
