The Carter Burden Network

  • 15 people are interested

The Carter Burden Network 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 Network's 40+ years of success. No matter your experience or schedule, CBN can accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience.

The Friendly Visiting program matches volunteers with seniors who share common interests and hobbies for social interaction. Volunteers must 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. The Friendly Visiting program is an on-going opportunity. We are looking for compassionate, patient, and committed volunteers comfortable engaging with a senior living in Manhattan.

Time commitment is flexible. Visits must occur at least twice a month on an ongoing basis and the seniors are located in the Upper East Side or East Harlem neighborhoods.
