Contact coordinator for times
A friendly visitor is a volunteer that comes in on a weekly basis to visit one-on-one with a resident that could benefit from this social interaction. A friendly visitor needs to be dependable and dedicated to coming in regularly to see their assigned resident(s). Some friendly visitors have one resident and some have up to 4 or 5 to visit. We work with what the volunteer is comfortable with and what their time commitment/availability is.
First, there is an application that must be filled out along with consent for a background check. Then two references are checked. After that is done, you are contacted for an interview/orientation to find out if the fit is right and what would be appropriate for the volunteer to do here at Dobie Road.
Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
