Join us for the Friendly Visitor Program Volunteer Training on Sunday July 29th from 12:00 - 2:30 PM at the DC Center!
The Friendly Visitor Program is a volunteer-based program that is designed to provide elderly members of the LGBT community with weekly visits from our trained volunteers.
As you may know, LGBT elders have scarce resources and are often isolated. According to the data of National Institute on Aging in 2008, LGBT Seniors are twice as likely to be single / live alone, 4 times less likely to have children than straight seniors, and only half as likely to have relatives to turn to for help.
This is why the DC Center is committed to the success of our Friendly Visitor Program. You have the opportunity to give back to the elderly members of the LGBT community who need it the most, and all it takes is a little commitment and a bright smile.
