In the wake of COVID-19 we have developed Project HELLO, a volunteer based effort that connects isolated older adults who are in need of socialization to friendly volunteers via the telephone. Volunteers are not only providing phone-based wellness checks, but also a sense of community. If you are an older adult who would like to receive a Project HELLO calls, please call the POINT at: 462-4444.
