    Friendly Visitors

    Many individuals with multiple sclerosis live in long term care facilities and would greatly enjoy just a few minutes of your time each month. This program connects people living with MS to volunteers who wish to donate their time by making others happy.  Lend your kindness and compassion and get to know people living with MS in the community. 

    Note: Friendly Visitor volunteers must participate in training prior to visiting client.

    Caring Hands

    This program takes the phrase “lending a hand” to an entirely new level.  Many people living with multiple sclerosis are not physically able to do everyday household chores that most of us take for granted.  It only takes a few hours to help clean out a garage, or rake leaves for someone living with MS, and you won’t understand how much it means to them until you leave.
