Social Bridging

This program is for people who

are experiencing social isolation or loneliness, and would benefit from regular social interaction over the phone, help using technology to connect to others, or help finding needed resource support.

The goal of this program is

to help alleviate difficulties that accompany social isolation. This includes social wellness check-in calls to people in North Carolina who feel they may benefit from regular conversations with a member of our team. 

Our trained callers make wellness-check in calls to learn the individual needs of each person they speak with. The Social Bridging Project then connects community members with the resources they need to be more comfortable at home. We help people become more comfortable using computers, tablets, cell phones, and video chat programs or social media. We also connect community members with a number of resources such as transportation services, meal deliveries, and no-cost wellness programs.

Most importantly, we are here to talk to you, listen to you, and connect you with your community in whatever way you may need.
