Do you love to knit or crochet and enjoy getting to know people? Especially your older friends and neighbors? Are you looking for a meaningful activity in your community?
Female Friendly Visiting volunteers who love to knit and/or crochet are needed to visit with older homebound women for an hour or two a week. Socialize and knit/crochet together in Fort Greene and Prospect Heights. Must have week day availability, preferably on Mondays and/or Fridays.
Join a vibrant group of local volunteers who provide companionship and support to homebound older adults in their own Brooklyn neighborhoods through weekly social visits, and/or assistance with small but meaningful errands and household projects. Become a Friendly Visitor today!
Heights and Hills Friendly Visiting Program introduces volunteers and isolated elderly neighbors to each other for companionship and support. Volunteers visit with his/her friend once a week at a mutually convenient time. Friendly Visits can take place on the week-ends and in the evenings as well as the daytime during the week. Volunteers provide companionship and assistance with very light household tasks such as helping someone who is visually impaired sort their mail. Volunteers and clients go for walks, play cards, cook together, chat about music, art, sports, theater, movies, TV shows - it really depends on the two people involved! to chat, read together, share interests, etc.
We believe that this special volunteer opportunity will enrich your life in ways that you may have never imagined, and will brighten the life of one other person: an isolated elderly neighbor.
