VirtuVisit | Help Others Stay Connected
Are you comfortable with technology and willing to help someone else learn? Your volunteerism can provide a lifeline for someone who is feeling lonely and disconnected. As COVID-19 persists, many people are becoming increasingly isolated. The City's Volunteer Services is working to reduce the impact of social isolation through its new VirtuVisit program. VirtuVisit is a no-cost program that provides participants with user-friendly digital tablets and startup support by trained volunteers.
We are looking for program participants to leverage technology to help isolated residents maintain relationships with their family and friends while also safely engaging with the community. Each participant is paired with a volunteer who will teach them to use the tablet and connect with others. With practice and simple instructions, participants learn how to connect with family and friends through a video call.

If you know someone who may benefit from participating in the VirtuVisit program, please ask them to register by completing the VirtuVisit Intake Form. To participate in the free program, participants only need access to Wi-Fi, a willingness to learn and Fort Collins residency.
