About Society of Sharing

Society of Sharing: Inner City Volunteers, SOS, provides services to isolated, lonely and frail seniors and adults with physical disabilities. SOS programs focus on single, displaced persons living in Toronto's downtown core yet who still live independently. SOS provides support to enhance their quality of life and extend the length of time they are able to live independently in their own homes. The core of SOS is a volunteer base. They recruit, screen, and match volunteers with clients to provide the best possible service. SOS also provides information and referrals to other agencies in order to help our clients meet their needs. Volunteers monitor seniors' physical well-being, and help reduce isolation and anxiety so as to increase a sense of security. Volunteers travel with seniors to medical appointments or grocery shopping.
