The Compassionate Contact Corps is a Volunteer telephone visitor program designed to provide companionship and emotional support to lonely or socially isolated Veterans.
If you’re interested in volunteering for this important program, contact the Fargo VA’s Center for Development & Civic Engagement at 701-239-3700 extension 3344. And if you know a Veteran who could benefit from this program, please connect them to us.
Visits are one to two times each week for 15 to 60 minutes based on the need and availability of the Volunteer and Veteran. Volunteers provide empathetic listening and communication to help improve the overall wellbeing of the Veteran.
