Caring Companion Program

August 26, 2021

The Caring Companion Program is for people who are able to come in on a weekly basis to visit with a veteran. Based on the volunteer's interests, they are matched with a veteran. Volunteers come in and do a variety of activities such as reading them the newspaper, playing a game of cards or taking them next door for a stroll in Steele Indian School park. Our veterans who do not have family members close by are usually placed in this program. This allows the veterans with minimal visitors to have someone in the community become their "adopted" family.
