Our program provides a wonderful opportunity to help change a life while also providing people in mental health recovery the comfort and self-motivation from the personalized support that helps their recovery.

We match caring volunteers with someone recovering from a mental health difficulty. Volunteers provide encouragement, acceptance, support and an opportunity to socialize on a monthly basis.
Compeer LifeFriends is an additional service to Compeer that provides group socialization, including guest speakers, monthly birthday celebrations, group meals, games, group matches, and women’s programming.
