Seniors Offering Support (SOS)

GWSA- Community Support Services

Seniors Offering Support  (SOS)

Seniors Offering Support is a free of charge telephone visiting service for isolated seniors.

Telephone visits are provided by senior volunteers who are kind and compassionate listeners.

The SOS Program provides an opportunity for volunteers and clients to share stories, reminisce, talk about interests and learn about programs and activities in the community.

Calls are made at a mutually agreeable time between volunteers and their clients.


Program participants will experience less isolation, greater connection to their community and support to manage everyday problems related to aging and living independently.

Our clients tell us SOS is a wonderful way to feel connected to the community. Volunteers are always welcome to join our team. To find out more about the Seniors Offering Support Program, please call the CSS office at 519-837-5696
