The Phone-A-Friend project provides regularly scheduled calls for seniors who live alone or are socially isolated and have little or no contact with people outside their home. Calls are made by trained Phone-A-Friend volunteers. The goal of the project is to help prevent isolation, decrease loneliness, and provide a safety check for isolated, homebound seniors.

Phone-A-Friend is made possible through funding from a Kupuna Aging in Place grant through the Hawai`i Community Foundation’s May Templeton Hopper Fund and Minnie K. Fund.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Are age 65 and older (Age restrictions are currently flexible due to COVID-19 pandemic)
  • Live on Oahu
  • Live alone or are socially isolated
  • Have temporary or permanent health problems that prevent you from participating in activities outside of your home
  • Would enjoy speaking to someone on a regular basis and having a connection to the outside world
  • Would benefit from a regularly scheduled call to make sure you are okay
  • Are able to use a telephone or cell phone and be home to accept scheduled calls from a Phone-A- Friend volunteer

Seniors interested in participating in the project may contact us by calling our Senior Intake Line at 527-4777. Family members interested in learning more about the program and referring agencies may also contact us this number.

Be a Volunteer Caller to Our Seniors

We are currently seeking volunteers to be a part of our Phone-A-Friend program. Phone-A-Friend volunteers provide telephone wellness checks and social connection for homebound, low income seniors. Volunteers are assigned to one or more homebound seniors and make calls on a routine basis.
