Project Compassion serves as our volunteer organization. Project Compassion began in 1972 when Gloria White visited a friend living in a nursing home. She was stunned by the number of residents who had no visitors. It started as a one-to-one visitation program and that is still the heartbeat of the organization. Project Compassions mission is to bring joy, companionship, and quality of life to residents of nursing homes. They have over 300 volunteers who provide one-to-one visits, assist with group activities such as cards, crafts, bingo, and pet and music therapies. Please contact them at 479-783-2273 to volunteer.
