Become a friendship volunteer

CO.AS.IT.’s Visitation Program offers friendship and social support to elderly and socially isolated Italians living in the community. We are currently looking for Italian speaking individuals willing to volunteer a couple of hours per week to visit older persons of Italian origin who are lonely and in need of company. By assisting an older person on a social level, you have the chance to make a difference in their life as well as in your own. If you are interested in becoming a friendship volunteer or wish to obtain more information about the program, please call 9349 9028.
