Bridgebuilders offers on-site, off-site and student volunteer opportunities.
55 Kip Center Home Friends Program - Is a group of carefully selected and trained volunteers who provide in-home supportive services as well as companionship. Home Friends works to increase each client's ability to remain in their own home, to stay connected and to improve their quality of life and that of their families. Volunteers provide escort for essential transportation needs including doctor appointments and grocery shopping. Most of us want to live independently in our own homes for as long as possible, but as we get older we may need some support and assistance. For more information on this program or to become a volunteer, please call Cathy Baviello at 201-460-1600. This program is partially funded by the Bergen County Division of Senior Services
