Compeer Art Auction

The 8th Annual Compeer Art Auction was a huge success. Approximately 80 people came to the Mulberry Art Studios to view and purchase 62 pieces of artwork and jewelry donated by local artisans. The tone of the evening was set as flute and oboe music filled the room while participants examined the display of artwork and jewelry. The attendees also snacked on a variety of delicious food items provided by local vendors. The event was a spectacular success as $8,800 was raised to help make a difference in the lives of over 250 persons who participate in the Compeer Program.

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.

  • Join Compeer Lancaster and support people
    in mental health wellness.
    Your donation is so valuable.
