Volunteer with One2One

One2One is a phone-based outreach program to support at-risk adults over the age of 60 and people with disabilities who typically live alone, are homebound, and have little or no caregiver support in metro Atlanta. The program seeks to decrease social isolation and loneliness by providing ongoing companionship and support, enabling people to remain in their own homes and stay connected to their communities.
