Since 1994, the Senior Companion Program has asked senior volunteers over the age of 55 to befriend homebound seniors in their community. The program is designed to foster independence among seniors by engaging them in community service and providing them with companionship opportunities. On average, Senior Companions provide over 70,000 hours of companionship each year!
During this year’s luncheon, we are recognizing nine volunteers with 10+ years of service, as well as honoring our Volunteer of the Year, Mr. Manuel Cavazos. With the generous support of the media, we can inspire other senior adults to volunteer, as well as alert homebound seniors about the services.
