Current Volunteer Opportunities

Friendly Callers Needed

Volunteers are needed for Connect Friendly Callers, a pilot project aiming to reduce social isolation for seniors living with disabilities during the pandemic. The Connect project matches a senior with a volunteer, for a virtual social visit using the senior’s preferred platform (phone, FaceTime, Zoom WhatsApp etc.).

If you are interested in sharing a few minutes of your time with an isolated senior, please connect with us by email at scampbell@able2.org or by phone at 613-761-9522 ext. 243.
