What is Keep In Touch?
For many of us, a call from a friend makes a big difference in how we feel. Knowing that someone cares and is there to share stories and laugh with is comforting and meaningful in so many ways. The Keep in Touch Program connects the people in our community with each other through a regular phone call.
How does the program impact our Community?
This friendly phone call program offers a connection to community members who are feeling isolated or who are in need of human connection. Keep In Touch helps to create meaningful relationships, builds connections, and strengthens our community.
When and where does the program run?
This program is a part of our Community Supports Program and is ongoing throughout the year. Volunteers and participants are encouraged to reach out to us at any time.
