“The Compeer program helps people with mental illness live happier, healthier, more productive lives through the power of friendship. Compeer is about making a difference by helping people get services that can support them, build them up and help them through the trials of life. It does this by helping them form a support system, an important aspect of their recovery process. Through group activities and one- to-one friendships with caring volunteers, people become less isolated, more connected to their community & become healthier individuals.
Do you have a few hours a month to do fun, social activities with someone who could benefit from your friendship? Are you looking for a flexible volunteer opportunity that can work around your schedule? Do you have a caring heart and a desire to help others? If so, then this is the opportunity for you!
