About Us

about usEveryone Needs A Friend…

When a person is diagnosed with a serious illness or disability, they face a variety of new situations, treatments, and changes in lifestyle brought about by that illness. Through caring volunteers, and with no cost to the patient or their family, FRIENDS, INC. offers multiple support services to seriously ill and disabled patients, helping them to cope with their new circumstances and enabling them to maintain their independence.

FRIENDS, INC. volunteers receive ongoing training and support. Volunteers are offered opportunities that meet their interests and availability, and are allowed great flexibility in scheduling as there is no minimum time commitment required. FRIENDS, INC. is a non-profit organization, committed to making a positive difference in the lives of the seriously ill, disabled, and elderly in Huntsville and Madison County.
