A fun Saturday break from the winter blues. The snow held off Saturday, Feb. 8th and 26 people enjoyed bowling, snacks and meeting others in the Compeer Lancaster program. Click here for more photos!
What is Compeer Lancaster?
We are a not-for-profit program of Mental Health America of Lancaster County that matches volunteers from the community with an adult who is in mental health recovery.
Friendship is important! Compeer friendships spend four hours each month for one year engaging in activities they both enjoy, such as going out to eat or walking in the park, attending a community event or play, enjoying a cup of coffee at a local coffee shop or going to the library.
Volunteers become positive role models, help raise self-esteem, increase social and communication skills and encourage independence for their Compeer friends.
The rewards are many when you volunteer for Compeer Lancaster. There are opportunities for personal growth and satisfaction through helping others.
Being a Compeer volunteer is fun and fits into your current lifestyle because you choose the hours just as you would with any friendship.
