Who Are We?
Compeer is a not for profit companionship program that is based on the concept that a volunteer's friendship and support can offset the loneliness and isolation that accompany mental illnesses. The help that persons coping with emotional problems need is often more than traditional therapy can offer. They need the support of a friend. They need a Compeer volunteer.
New this year! Lunch Buddy Program - whereby a trained adult will go to a school and meet with a referred child and have lunch. Mondays are often the day that children miss school and as a Lunch Buddy date is planned, they tend to go to school for the "date" and therefore do better in school.
We are looking to start E-Buddy in the future. Anyone interested?
