The word Compeer means "friend", "equal" or "peer"- not mental health professional, social worker, or care taker. Our mission is to use the power of volunteer friends to improve the lives of children and adults who are striving for good mental health.
Each person on the Compeer waitlist comes from different backgrounds, face different challenges, and bring individual personality to their situation.
At Compeer, we believefriendship is powerful medicine! The consistent, caring relationships formed between volunteers and their friends foster a sense of belonging, trust, and self-esteem in the people referred to the program.
Compeer is the remarkable story of personal change brought about by the healing power of friendship. At Compeer, friendship is given a whole new meaning.
