Tuesday, October 16, 2018
9:30am - 5:00pm

  The Compeer Program at Mental Health Association in Ulster is always looking for caring volunteers to be friends and mentors to adults who receive mental health services. Volunteers can help to ease loneliness and isolation and improve community mental health, just by being a friend! All it takes is 4 hours a month. Volunteers are matched with a friend, with whom they stay in touch through phone calls, emails, and fun outings which they plan together. All volunteers are screened through interviews and background checks,  trained by the Compeer Coordinator, and matched in a supportive friendship with a Compeer participant. The Coordinator stays in contact with all in the program to provide ongoing support. Monthly group activities are also planned. Volunteers must have a clean driving record. Program is based at the Kingston office.To learn more, contact the Compeer Coordinator at (845) 339-9090 x2206 or tjoseph@mhainulster.com. Make a friend. Change a life. Be a Compeer.

Volunteer recruitment is on-going. Coordinator can be contacted Tues, Wed, Thurs. 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM.
