Friendly Visitor Program

Our Friendly Visitor Program enlists the help of volunteers to make weekly Zoom meetings or phone calls with LGBTQ seniors living in their homes as well as those in residential facilities who may not feel safe coming out to staff or other residents. The volunteers are carefully trained and thoughtfully matched with a senior who welcomes a caring connection. Each match is then supervised to ensure a good fit. If you are a senior who would like a friendly visit or know of one — or if you would like to volunteer to make such visits – please contact Bill Blackburn, Senior Program Coordinator, at bblackburn@thespahrcenter.org or 415/761-3261.
