Befrienders is a non-profit organization that provides companionship, support, and advocacy for the aging population throughout the Gallatin Valley.
Due to life transition, physical limitations or other circumstances, seniors may have limited social interaction. Befrienders matches a volunteer and a senior together to spend at least an hour each week doing a variety of activities, such as going out to lunch, playing games or just talking.
Befrienders was established in 1993 and has brought many generations together in a mutually rewarding relationship by honoring the human spirit and providing life-enriching volunteer opportunities. The program is free and open to seniors age 65 and older and volunteers age 18 and older.
