VirtuVisit connects isolated older adults to family, friends and the volunteers supporting them. This no-cost program provides seniors with user-friendly digital tablets and startup support by trained volunteers. Each participating senior is paired with a volunteer who will teach them to use the tablet and connect with others. With practice and simple instructions, participants will be able to easily connect for a video call with family and friends.
To participate in the free VirtuVisit program, participants only need access to wi-fi and a willingness to learn.

VirtuVisit: Connect with your Community#
Are you isolated due to COVID? Do you know someone who would benefit from seeing family and friends but can't for safety reasons? The VirtuVisit program can help! Once accepted, a friendly City volunteer will contact you to help you set up with free user-friendly smart device that you can use for six months. Your Tech Buddy volunteer will teach you to use the device and make sure you feel comfortable. When are ready, you can connect with friends, family or other participants. You can attend virtual classes and even join a virtual church service. All City volunteers receive a background check and in-depth training.
Volunteer to become a Tech Buddy!#
Whether, its cards, tea, or just chatting there are so many ways to connect with isolated members of our community. Volunteer to make someone's world a little bigger by becoming a Tech Buddy. Tech Savvy volunteers are needed to work alongside participants to help set up their new devices and learn to connect with family and friends.
