Located on the Lower East Side on Pitt Street, Los Vecinos Apartments is a co-ed 35 room permanent housing facility for formerly homeless men and women suffering from mental illness, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS. While providing permanent housing for its tenants, Los Vecinos also offers a variety of services aimed at helping clients stabilize their health, maintain their independence and build a community of support among peers. These services include case management, referrals to medical facilities and assistance managing health conditions, medication monitoring, health education, psychiatric management, entitlement support and money management, recreational activities, assistance with activities of daily living and free meals. Why not join the volunteer team and make a difference?
Are you a certified yoga instructor? Would you like to share your knowledge and gain some good karma in the process? If so, perhaps you’d consider hosting a weekly low level yoga class with a small group of residents at Los Vecinos. As you already know, yoga is an excellent means to improve flexibility & gain muscle strength, as well as increase self-esteem and bring inner peace. We can all use a bit more of this in our lives; why not share your abilities with our residents? If this is of interest, just get in touch with your availability and we will get this going!
PLEASE NOTE: In order to insure the integrity of the BRC volunteer program, as well as the well being of the clients we service, all interested parties must complete a New Volunteer Registration form and attend an orientation, prior to receiving an assignment. Apologies, but we are unable to accept walk-ins.
We'll work with your schedule.
