About

The Kaplan Center for Community Services helps people who are struggling with a range of emotional and social problems. The Kaplan Center also provides psychiatric and social services to Jewish emigres from the former Soviet Union and elsewhere, and counseling services for senior citizens and their families.

As a Client Companion for the Kaplan Center, you will assist one of the clients using their mental health services. This client lives independently in Boro Park, is in his mid to late 50s, and is looking for someone to accompany him to the grocery store as well as expose him to exercise, which can be as simple as going for a walk around the neighborhood.

This opportunity is available Monday Friday in Boro Park. Volunteer is needed 1x/week in the afternoon for at least 6 months.
