Background

Community Companions provides mentors/volunteer friends (all of whom are UMass Dartmouth students) to people with mental illness, autism, cognitive disability, brain injury, or dementia. Volunteers are matched with a program that serves one of these populations. They visit their program or an individual client within the program once a week for 2-3 hours and engage in recreational and social activities, providing friendship and a positive role model.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers are all UMass Dartmouth students. We work with programs that serve individuals with neural diversity (mental illness, autism, brain injury, cognitive disability or dementia). Programs serving these populations who would like student volunteers should call 508 999 8650 and ask for Christine Frizzell.
