Shanti - Emotional Support volunteers play an invaluable role in the lives of people with life-threatening illnesses by supporting them in a compassionate and respectful manner. We look for people who can listen well, who can build a relationship based on equality, and who can set aside their own expectations when with a client. Most clients and volunteers meet once a week for 2-3 hours, sometimes at the client's home, at times out at a cafe or park, wherever the two feel comfortable. Volunteers attend a four-day training and are asked to make a one-year commitment. Please call Cherie at (206) 324-1520 x229 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
ElderFriends is a volunteer-based program run by Full Life Care that provides companionship, outreach, and advocacy services to isolated older adults throughout Seattle and King County. Volunteers make a commitment to visit with one elder friend a minimum of 2-3 times monthly for a year. These regular friendly visits help relieve isolation and loneliness, ensuring that elders receive needed social and emotional support. Get involved by becoming a volunteer today! For more information contact Ginger Seybold at (206) 224-3790 or email@example.com.
