“There is a wonderful program with caring people right in our community who can become that trusted voice on the other end of the line and be that friend to you!” Sue Berger, Sarasota County's Aging System Policy Coordinator

UPLIFT offers its CallConnect program to connect community members through fun, social telephone calls. CallConnect is designed to create meaningful conversations among people with similar interests or experiences. Participants in the program simply use their own phones to call through the CallConnect software system.


Social call programs are a simple yet effective way to promote social connection and address loneliness. Ongoing, regular engagement with caring volunteers can be effective preventative care.


To learn more or participate, contact Sue Berger, CallConnect’s Program Administrator, at or at 941-861-2558.
