Program to Accompany and Comfort


About the Program to Accompany and Comfort: 


The Program to Accompany and Comfort’s mission is to minimize the isolation and loneliness experienced by individuals with advanced illness who are facing the end of their lives alone. Individuals are known beyond their illness, through special relationships with a Volunteer. We are the only nonprofit organization of its kind specializing in specially training, carefully matching and supervising Volunteers who visit individuals each week for about an hour (at their homes or in a healthcare facility). Our Volunteers form meaningful relationships that can last weeks, months, and often several years. Our Volunteers find their lives as enriched as those they visit! Our office staff supports the meaningful work that our Volunteers do in the community. To learn more visit:
