One Good Deed

One Good Deed Friendly Visitor Program

Since 2006, One Good Deed (OGD) has carefully matched more than 400 older adults with community volunteers. These friendly visitors bring companionship and joy to seniors in our community. Our mission is to reduce loneliness, help older adults maintain their independence, and remain in their own homes.

How One Good Deed Can Help

OGD carefully matches care recipients with a community volunteer who makes a one-year commitment to visit twice a month. Volunteers provide support by helping their recipient accomplish tasks such as running errands, shopping excursions, cooking a meal together, or simply enjoying an afternoon out. In undertaking these essential tasks together, volunteers act as social supports providing care recipients with companionship, encouragement and long lasting friendship.

Volunteer Commitment

What does it take to be a OGD volunteer?

1. One Good Deed matches volunteers over the ages of 21 with an older adult who is living independently but could benefit from some friendly companionship and support.
2. Volunteers visit with their older adult for a minimum of 2 hours at a time and at least twice a month
3. Volunteers help their older friend with simple tasks creating a bond that impacts both the volunteer and their older adult in ways that can't be measured!

Help for Family Caregivers and Friends

If you have a loved one who is older than 60 and lives independently but is aging in place and in need of some companionship and support, One Good Deed volunteers can help support your loved one and you.

One Good Deed will visit with the family caregiver and the older adult in their home to determine if a volunteer may be able to provide some support. To begin, please fill out the Family Caregiver Application.
