Telephone Friends

Volunteers who participate in DOROT’s Telephone Friends are matched with older adults for weekly friendly phone calls that enrich both of their lives. Whether discussing the news of the day, a favorite memory or a good book, weekly telephone conversation builds friendship and common interests. DOROT’s corps of Telephone Friends volunteers call older adults at mutually agreed upon, convenient times and help brighten their days.

Ages: 18+

Time Commitment: Weekly phone visits for at least 15 minutes each.

Requirements: Volunteer orientation, application and references.

Next Steps: Are you a new volunteer? Please sign up for an upcoming Volunteer Orientation and Information Session. If you are currently a DOROT volunteer and have already attended an orientation session, contact volunteers@dorotusa.org.
