Friendly Calls Program

Friendly Calls Program
For some people, a little conversation can make a big difference. So, what if we told you that a meaningful connection was just a phone call away?
The Friendly Calls program matches people over the age of 18 with trained Red Cross  personnel who connect with them regularly to check in, provide emotional support, encourage healthy coping strategies, and suggest well-being resources and community connections to other existing services.
It’s not just about making a phone call — it’s about forming connections. The Friendly Calls program is part of our bigger commitment to care for the overall well-being of people who live in Canada by creating and fostering stronger, more connected communities together.
Everyone deserves to benefit from the power of human connection, no matter where you live. We can’t wait to connect with you!
Friendly Calls is safe, accessible, free, and available nationwide. Call 1-833-979-9779 toll-free from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, or click below to sign up.
