Bikur Chaverim, “visiting friends,” is a volunteer-based program providing home visits to adults who are homebound or partially homebound. The visits focus on creating relationships to have every individual feel alive, to give and receive wisdom, enjoyment and companionship, and to feel value through each stage of life. The goal of this visit is to have both parties feel purpose and meaning through being together.
Program Coordinator Fran Dinehart, LCSW, leads the program with vigor and heart. “There is so much life and love in everyone; we only have to look for it,” she says. “And there is so much we can learn from one another.”
Bikur Chaverim is currently looking for volunteers! More information about volunteering can be found here.
