Smiling senior woman having video call on smart phone at home

Find your new friendship here. Our staff takes a thoughtful approach to carefully matching volunteers and older people for regular phone or video calls that bring meaning and social connection across the generations.

Social Call connects people across the country and across generations. Conversations can be light-hearted, supportive, funny, and always meaningful. People 18 and older can volunteer and people 60 and older can participate, volunteer or both.
