COVID-19 Buddy Sign Up / Registration
In light of the COVID-19 situation, the CDC is recommending for older adults and individuals with serious medical conditions to “seek out a 'buddy' who will check on and help care for them if they get sick”.
The team at Pittsburgh Cares is hoping to help those who wish to be a “buddy “to someone and to help those seeking a “buddy”.
This could mean people who:
- Are over the age of 60
- Are immunocompromised
- Have spouses working on the "front lines" and cannot go to the store, etc.
We’re aiming to find community members who can provide:
- Check-in phone calls to fellow neighbors
- The sharing of any news and information
- Run errands such as picking up groceries, medications, etc. (when possible/ if needed)
For more information, visit the CDC’s website at
If you would like to sign up to be a “buddy” for someone, or are looking to find a “buddy”, please fill out the form below, email
, or call 412-471-2114 x200 and someone will get back to you.
Please know that the information shared will be confidential to Pittsburgh Cares staff and will not be used for any purpose other than helping to match buddies. Information will be shared only when both matched buddies have given permission. By completing this form you are consenting to have your volunteer background check completed by a Pittsburgh Cares staff member before being matched to a buddy. If you already have a background check, you will be asked to provide your clearance information.
Stay healthy, and thank you for caring, Pittsburgh! <3
