Give the gift of your time and companionship to a senior, become a Social Call friendly visitor in Marin County.
Volunteers find their visits highly rewarding and many develop long-term relationships with their older adult match. This connection is based on the idea that both the volunteer and participant have much to give to one another, ensuring a reciprocal bond. We encourage volunteers to embrace the experience and stories that come with aging, as it’s sure to give you a unique perspective!
Social Call volunteers:
Receive training in interpersonal and listening skills. Trainings are held regularly and last about 2 hours.
Are matched with an older adult to whom you will provide friendly companionship and a compasionate presence.
Visit with their match once a week, for an hour or 2, at a time that works for both of you. Matches are based on location, common interests, and availability.
Bilingual volunteers encouraged to apply.

Would you like to make a diffrerence for survivors of the 2017 Wildfires in Napa County? The Napa County Disaster Recovery Group, which is composed of a number of non-profit agencies that are coordinating the long term recovery services for individuals and famiies that were impacted by the wildfires, is planning to conduct an outreach campaign to survivors of the disaster who registered with FEMA to make sure that anyone who needs help and has not received it is not forgotten or left behind.
Volunteers will be provided with a script that can be used to conduct a brief telephone survey. Training will also be provided so that volunteers are prepared to administer the survey. Calls can be made from your home at a time that's most convenient for you.
