The FREED Telephone Reassurance program is for anyone feeling lonely or isolated in Nevada County. A phone bank of volunteers makes phone calls Monday - Friday to check-in, chat, and socialize. Individuals who would like to receive telephone calls can choose to receive calls from one day a week up to 5 days a week.
 
The FREED Friendly Visitor program is not conducting in-person visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, volunteers are still being matched one-on-one for individuals who prefer to have a friendly phone visit from the same volunteer on a regular basis.
