Friendship Program for Seniors

Posted on: January 29, 2018

Social connectedness is strongly linked to a person's overall health. To better connect older adults to the community, Lorain County Public Health has launched the Buddy Connect Program. The program pairs volunteers* with people who are 55+ -- participants receive two phone calls per month from their buddy volunteer. Once a month home visits are also available.

Call (440) 567-4120 to sign up!

*Now accepting volunteers for this program, too.
