The purpose of the senior companion program (SCP) is to provide meaningful part-time volunteer opportunities for low-income older persons to render supportive person-to-person services to adults with special or exceptional needs in health, education, welfare, and related fields. The services are intended primarily for persons in their own homes, but those in group homes, nursing homes, or other public or private nonprofit institutions or agencies, providing care for adults with disabilities or elderly persons may also be served.
