About

The Carter Burden Center for the Aging (CBCA) is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to remain in their homes living independently, safely, and with dignity. Volunteers are an integral component of the Carter Burden Center's 40+ years of success. No matter your age, experience or schedule, CBCA can accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience.

We're looking for compassionate, patient, and committed people to visit with seniors on a regular basis. The Friendly Visiting program matches volunteers with seniors who share common interests and hobbies for social interaction. Volunteers participate in visits at least twice a month (for 1-2 hours) in a senior's home and may chat, play a game, read a book, take a walk (if the senior is able), or another activity. Seniors are located on the Upper East Side and East Harlem.

The Friendly Visiting program is an on-going opportunity. Time is flexible but we are looking for volunteers available on weekdays (preferably in the afternoons) and weekends.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email us at: volunteer@carterburdencenter.org
