Find a True Refuge Companion

Our Companions have all been specially trained in holding loving presence for those facing the challenges of aging, illness and death. We attempt to match Companions with IMCW community members based on geographic proximity or a mutual comfort level with holding sessions over the phone or via Skype.

The fastest way to be assigned a Companion is to complete our online application. If you prefer a mail-in application, however, you can find a printable Companion application here. Please note that the mail-in application will take 2-3 weeks to process.

Begin the Program

Once you've been assigned a Companion, you are ready to begin the program. During your first meeting with your Companion you will review your True Refuge Companion Agreement. You’ll review your shared understanding of the relationship, how often you’ll meet, where and for how long.

Additional Questions

If you have other questions about the program, please contact Jill Drew, True Refuge Companion Coordinator.
