Companionship, Help & Access by Telephone for Seniors (CHATS) is a Gulf Coast JFCS program that matches seniors with a volunteer caller so they can enjoy a weekly telephone chat.

CHATS program staff matches callers based on preferences and interests. Callers work together to decide what day and time to chat. CHATS is free, only a reliable land line or cell phone is required.
