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.

Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity and the Napa County Disaster Recovery Group are assisting three older 2017 Wildfire survivors to rebuild their homes in the Mount Veeder and Atlas Peek areas of Napa County. Before construction actually begins this summer, we are looking for some hearty volunteers who will work in groups of six along with a site supervisor at each house site performing cleanup work that needs to be completed including brush removal, weeding, raking, spreading woodchips, improving pathways, and removing low hanging branches. This work will require volunteers who are in relatively good physical condition and who can easily maneuver in fairly rough terrain. Volunteers should plan to wear work pants and a hat for protection from the sun, shoes that provide good support, and work gloves.
Work sessions will occur in the morning from 9:00 am to noon. A snack and cold drinks will be offered and toilet facilities will be provided. Please contact Nathan from the Napa County Disaster Recovery Group at 603.494.7266 if you’re interested or would like additional information.
