Friendly Visiting

Appointment Companion & Special Project volunteers are ready, willing and able to volunteer in a wide range of capacities across our programs when their schedule allows. Flexibility is key to how this volunteer role works!

Appointment Companion & Special Project volunteers receive occasional emails from us (2-6 per month) asking for volunteer support for a variety of upcoming activities and needs including but not limited to:

  • escorting individual clients to and from medical appointments and/or cultural outings
  • providing admin support in our office for mailings, phone calls, filing or shredding
  • helping-out at the Park Slope Center for Successful Aging for specific events and projects
  • holiday projects & special initiatives
How often you will hear from us is hard to predict since we are responding to the real-time needs of our clients and programs, but we try to give you a week or two notice and bundle a few requests together at a time whenever possible. Some weeks you may get as many three emails, some weeks you may not receive any, it all depends on the requests we get from the folks we work with and the projects we have going on.

How often you volunteer is up to YOU!
You only need to respond to our emails if you want to help-out with a request, we do NOT need to hear from you if you can’t help. We know you would if you could!
