Community Peer to Peer Program
Compeer is a friendship program that matches volunteers from the community with persons receiving treatment for mental health. The volunteer is cleared through background checks, references, and fingerprints, and must also complete a training regimen before meeting with their participant. Volunteers and Friends meet regularly 1:1 creating their own schedule and agenda together for any number of activities. Some go fishing or shopping, walk the bike trail or see a movie, anything they choose to do together; they're simply being Friends. Compeer Volunteers will then receive training and have access to on-going education and support from Compeer Staff.
