Friendly Visitor


The Neighborhood Friendly Visitor Program provides companionship and friendly support to homebound elderly persons across the state. Volunteers visit, read, write letters, and chat with shut-ins who benefit from regular social contact.

This program welcomes seniors who wish to volunteer their time for a few hours each week. Homebound seniors may also call to find out about getting a visitor.

The Neighborhood Friendly Visitor Program is located at 184 Broad Street, Providence, RI 02903. Call 421-7833, ext. 4.

Most Retired Senior Volunteer Programs in Rhode Island also provide opportunities for friendly visiting activities. (See Page 79).

SAGE/RI (Senior Action in a Gay Environment) helps isolated gay seniors through advocacy, outreach, and social activities. Call 751-1487.
