Senior peer counseling
If you are over fifty-five and looking for a volunteer position, you can help other seniors with issues of sadness, stress, and self-esteem by becoming a volunteer with the Sandoval Senior Connection. You can learn new skills, make new friends, and give back to the community. You can become a caring, sensitive, and respectful listener.
For further information about the program or the training program that will run from April 2 through May 23, call the project director, Elizabeth C. Etigson, or the administrative assistant, Debbie Trujillo, at Outcomes, Inc., at 243-2551.
