Betty’s Service Coordination Story

It Takes One Friend to Make a World of Difference

Betty, a Roseville resident, was no longer able to drive and missed the social connections she once enjoyed. John was a first-year Century College nursing student who wanted to volunteer in the community. RASP’s Friendly Visitors volunteer program matched Betty and John in a mentoring/social partnership. RASP’s Friendly Visitors successfully links community members seeking to make a difference with seniors desiring social interaction and community support. All of this was possible through RASP’s Service Coordination.
