The Community Companions Program provides one-to-one companionship and assistance in daily living for people with mental illness. The goals of the program include increased socialization and linkage to community resources. Volunteers visit the client at least two hours a week, participating in mutually agreeable activities. Together, they find new social groups, learn about community resources, and share in a supportive friendship.
What We Provide
The Mental Health Association of Morris County (MHAMC) provides trained volunteer companions who commit to a minimum of two hours of face-to-face contact per week for three months. Matches are based on gender, location, and interests.
