Friendly Caller Program
The Friendly Caller program matches a volunteer with an older adult to simply enjoy conversation on the phone to ease feelings of loneliness. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and enjoy talking on the phone. If you’re interested in volunteering please contact Laura Bray at 765-759-3372 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an older adult who is experiencing isolation and would enjoy receiving calls from a LifeStream Friendly Caller, please call 800-589-1121.
