ABOUT THE FRIENDLY CONNECTIONS TELEPHONE PROGRAM
NorCal's Telephone Program helps seniors remain connected to their community while living independently in their own home. Trained, friendly and trustworthy volunteers will call your home and check in with you. They will ask how you are doing. The volunteers can provide referrals to services that you may need and inform you about upcoming local Deaf events.
