Compeer for Adults

Friendship can change a person’s life. Good things happen when you have a friend. Friends listen. They share. Friends are the best kind of medicine for someone who’s striving for good mental health. Through Compeer you can be a caring friend to someone. It can be as simple as going for a walk, seeing a movie together or just picking up the phone. It can take as little as an hour a week.

Compeer matches volunteers with adults between the ages of 18 and 59 in the Adult Program. Currently, we have over 100 people matched with Compeer volunteers, but there are still many more waiting for a friend in Erie County. They might even live in your neighborhood.

Just some of the things that Compeer adult matches enjoy: going to the park for a walk, conversation over a cup of coffee, bowling, watching sports live or on TV, shopping, crafting and playing recreational sports. They also attend Compeer’s free social engagement activities, such as paint night, BINGO, and game night.
