"Trained staff and volunteers make and receive calls to and from individuals who are either in crisis or just in need of a friend."
There is also a Call Out Service: trained volunteers make phone calls to older adults for emotional support or medication reminders. To arrange call-out service, call 415-750-4111.
The Friendship Line is offered by the Institute on Aging.
The Friendship Line Hotline/Warmline number is 800-971-0016.
