Description

The buddy program was designed to provide agency clients with on-to-one support from trained volunteers. These trained volunteers often become the primary contacts between the clients and staff of AIDS Community Services of Western New York. Buddy volunteers may serve as companions, peer counselors, advocates, helpers with daily living tasks, or a combination of all of these. The buddy does not take the place of a case manager, but rather serves as a member of the Case Management Team. The Buddy serves under the direct supervision of the client's case manager.
