United Way / Faith in Action
Volunteers assist Westmoreland County seniors by providing much needed services.  These services include but are not limited to: 
  • Friendly Visits
  • Appointment escort
  • Handy person / minor repairs
  • Telephone reassurance
  • Caregiver relief
  • Errands / shopping
  • Referral assistance
  • Yard work / gardening

Friendly visitors may share a hobby or a cup of coffee, but most importantly, they listen to and talk with those who need companions.
Qualities & Requirements
Friendly Visitors should possess a high level of integrity, a desire to help seniors, good listening skills and a caring and sensitive attitude. 
Attend a volunteer orientation and periodic training sessions where you will meet and network with other folks willing to make a difference.
Simply visit or call a home-bound senior or seniors at a mutually-agreed upon time.  All it takes is about an hour a week.
While nothing compares to the fulfillment you receive by bringing sunshine to someone's day, our volunteers' efforts are honored every year at a recognition event celebrating National Volunteer Week.

This project is funded, in part, under a contract with the Westmoreland Board of County Commissioners, The United Way, Area Agency on Aging and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and the Administration on Aging.
