About

Help out an elderly neighbor by keeping them company on appointments!

Heights and Hills is a 44 year old non-profit organization that promotes successful aging in the community. We provide free case management services and referrals to frail and homebound residents over the age of sixty and their loved ones in nineteen Brooklyn neighborhoods. Our goal is to ensure that all community members, regardless of age, can continue to be vital, vibrant, and visible members of the communities they have helped to build.

We need your help! Many of the people we work with are looking for comapions to help them travel to and from important medical and other kinds of appointments.

Senior Companion Volunteers help out on an as needed basis by meeting our clietns at their homes and providing company and a steadying arm as they travel to and from appoinments. Volunteers accompany them by car service, Access-A-Ride, taxi and even bus and subway.

Volunteer assignments usually last between 3 and 5 hours.
