Welcome to Elder Friends Phone Companions!

Friendship is the cure for feeling more vibrant, connected and engaged.

Good news!

Thanks to a wonderful outpouring of support from generous people like you, our Phone Companion Program is currently at full volunteer capacity. Now, we are excited to call on you to rally around a new opportunity! Use our Ambassador Toolkit to spread the word to older adults through your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, places of worship, community groups, and businesses. Your effort, energy, and passion will pave a path for more older adults to join Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly and connect with a friendly, understanding Phone Companion. Together, we can help end older adult loneliness and isolation!

If you wish to volunteer, complete the form below, and you will be placed on a waiting list and notified when opportunities become available. Thank you!

There is nothing like the feeling one gets when a friend is about to call. The laughter, the stories, sharing the experiences. If you are an older adult or care for someone who is, the phone may not be ringing as often as one would like. That is where Elder Friends Phone Companions comes in. We connect older adults with warm and caring volunteers ready to create and enjoy a connection.

It all begins with just a phone call and blossoms from there. We know because we have been successfully bringing friends together for over 48 years.

So, get connected with people eager to share their friendship.
