Openhouse enables San Francisco Bay Area LGBT seniors to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age by providing housing, support services and hosting LGBT-focused community events. We exist to reduce isolation and empower LGBT seniors to lead healthy lives.
Our most urgent volunteer requirement is for our Friendly Visitor Program. We match a senior to a volunteer who will visit their home monthly and spend around an hour being a friend: sharing stories and shared interests over a coffee. You may also take short trips to a local park or somewhere of interest. The program asks you to be able to commit at least one hour per month, over a twelve month period. We provide lots of great support and training for this rewarding volunteering opportunity!
Not sure or unable to make an ongoing commitment? We also offer a number of one-off volunteer opportunities at groups and lunches where you can meet our community members and help us deliver our program of classes, workshops and events.
