Emotional Support Programs



In Person

If you're looking to make new connections and have an impact on someone's life, we encourage you to sign up for our chapter's emotional support programs
  • FRIENDLY VISITING PROGRAM: Residents of long-term care facilities can request a volunteer visit. This program offers the opportunity to make new friends and stay connected with your community.
  • INTOUCH PROGRAM: Volunteers who live in long-term care facilities make phone calls to people living with MS who self-identify as "homebound." This program offers companionship, socialization and emotional support.
  • PEER MENTOR PROGRAM: People living with MS are matched with mentors based on location and specified preferences, such as gender. Mentors are screened, interviewed and trained to provide emotional support. Peers are encouraged to meet in person. 
We need volunteers. Are you compassionate, a good listener, and someone who wants to make a difference in the life of someone living with MS? We are looking for volunteers for all three emotional support programs.

If you or someone you know would find these programs beneficial, or for more information
about volunteering, contact Alessandra DiCicco at or 215-271-1500 (ext. 24124).
