Help others ---- Join
us a a volunteer!
It has been said that helping
others is one of the greatest therapies of all times.

Some of the types of volunteer
- Host a Chat Room. You
must have regular access to the Internet. As the host,
you will be greeting the visitors, making them
comfortable, encouraging conversation and answering
basic questions, etc. It is a great way to meet
