About

We are Community Agency for Senior Citizens, Inc. We have been in Staten Island for over 40 years.
We only serve Older Adults.

The program is called the Friendly Visiting Program. The program began in January/2017.
We look to "Match" you with an Older Adult. The program asks that you spend one hour in the Client's home.
While visiting the Client, you can have a cup of coffee/tea, play a table top game, cards, read a book together, watch a movie. The visit is what you both decide upon.

This is a building block relationship. So far, many of our "Match's" have become good friends and look forward to these weekly visits.

Your volunteering brings much happiness to someone who is alone and isolated.
