Mission: Promoting good mental health through meaningful friendships.
Values: Respect*Trust*Hope*Empowerment

Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc.’s Compeer Program fosters good mental health and increased social skills by matching community volunteers in supportive mentoring friendships with at risk youth, adults, seniors, and veterans receiving mental health services in Oneida and Herkimer Counties.

Volunteering with Compeer is a rewarding way to give back to the community and bring positivity and hope into the life of an individual in need. Just one caring friend is life changing for an individual striving for mental wellness.

Mentoring opportunities include:

1:1 Youth Friendship: Volunteer is matched with a youth in a 1:1 supportive friendship

1:1 Adult Friendship: Volunteer is matched with an adult in a 1:1 supportive friendship

E-Buddies: Volunteers communicate with match or individual via email/text/phone calls/video calls/social media

If you think you are the right person to provide meaningful friendship to an individual in need, please call (315) 733-1709.
