You can make a difference as a Friendly Visitor!
Friendly Visitors are compassionate individuals and groups who engage in fun and meaningful activities with residents living in Dallas County long-term care facilities to build social connections and to enrich their lives.
The Senior Source provides opportunities for in-person and remote volunteer engagement.
NOTE: We DO NOT participate in court-appointed community service.
