    Volunteer Opportunities:

    Nearly 50% of Rhode Island nursing homes residents do not receive any visits from family or friends. They feel alone, isolated and powerless. Volunteer ombudsmen speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves.
    If you posses skills in listening, communicating, problem solving, empathy, and good judgement and wish to help elderly and disabled Rhode Islanders who receive long term care, please consider becoming a volunteer ombudsman.
    We seek those who are willing to complete a comprehensive training course and who can devote three hours per week assisting residents at assigned facilities close to home or work.
