Volunteer to be a friendly visitor
Child & Family Services of Newport has an immediate need for Friendly Visitors who visit the homebound elderly on a regular basis.
They have elders who are confined to their home and are waiting for visitors in Tiverton, Portsmouth, Middletown and Newport. These elders have very few social contacts and would welcome a visit from someone who cares about them. Volunteers might chat, read, play cards or take their elder for a ride. Hours are flexible. A one-year commitment preferred. Before making a commitment, the volunteer is introduced to the elder so, together, they can decide if it looks like a good match. To volunteer office at 848-4210.
