CLEARLAKE – The board of Konocti Senior Support Inc., welcomes new directors Susanne La Faver, Hidden Valley Lake, and Elizabeth Turman, Clearlake.

The organization provides free peer counseling throughout Lake County and administers the Friendly Visitor Program in South County.

Volunteer peer counselors receive training and have ongoing group supervision and support by Clinical Consultant Kim Baughan Young, Marriage Family Therapist.

The Friendly Visitor Program offers friendship, understanding and companionship on a regular basis to South County seniors having limited access to outside activities. Volunteers are trained and participate in monthly supervision meetings.

In addition to President Lawrence Grant and new directors La Faver and Turman, board members include Hope H. Brewer, vice-president; Jane McKnight, secretary; Charmaine Webb, treasurer; and Gwen Snyder.
