In our town, many older adults and those who have disabilities live alone and enjoy their independence. Unfortunately, some are isolated, separated from their families, or are in need of a caring friend. Simple gestures can make a difference; they help your neighbor feel connected to the community. Individuals can remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Our Friendly Visitor Program is committed to supporting our residents by helping them remain in their homes. We do this by matching local volunteers with residents that need support.

Our Volunteers Make a Difference by Providing

  • Transportation to local appointments
  • Help with grocery shopping
  • Home visits
  • Chatting on the phone
  • Clerical assistance


  • Have an impact on the life on their neighbors
  • Donate two hours per week at a time that works for them
  • Are trained
  • Go through a background check at no charge to them
  • Will be insured while they are working

There is no charge for the service. Services are offered to older adults and adults with disabilities. This service is available to residents of Woodbury, Central Valley, and Highland Mills
