  • 435 Sutton Way
    Grass Valley, Nevada

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 matches Friendly Visitor participants to volunteers—who then get together to see movies, hang out, have conversations, play cards, go for a walk, or just talk. Volunteers can also meet by phone.
