Mission Statement:  Friend to Friend of Greater Spokane enhances the quality of life for residents of long-term care facilities who do not have contact with friends or family by matching them with community volunteers on a one-to-one basis.


  • There are many individuals in long-term care and assisted living facilities in our area who are isolated, lonely and in need of a Visiting Friend.   
  • Friend to Friend partners with many of these facilities in Spokane and Pend Oreille counties to meet the needs of residents with no family or friends in the area.   

  • Friend to Friend started in 1979.  It was incorporated as a Washington non-profit corporation in 2004 and an IRS 501 (c)(3) organization in 2006.  

The Organization is governed by a Board of Directors:  
Ed Miles, President
Jenna Burgener, Vice President
Connie Miles, Treasurer
Grace Nutter
Nancy Ferre
Shel Riggins
Larry Krueger
Volunteer Opportunities:
  • Become a Visiting Friend in three easy steps:
