Reach Out to Homebound – Sourcewise Ambassador Program 

Human connection, fellowship, and friendship are good for the mind and soul. Volunteers bring a little joy and companionship to homebound seniors in our community.

Are you a natural nurturer who loves good conversation? The Sourcewise Ambassador Program is a perfect volunteer opportunity for you. Whether it’s a few minutes or an hour, a wellness call helps our elders feel connected during these uncertain times.

To become part of the Sourcewise Ambassador Program, you’ll be required to participate in a training session and make calls 1 or more hours per week. The commitment minimum is two months.  Bilingual speakers are especially needed for Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Russian homebound.

Individuals or groups can email us.
