AHRC New York City's ONE-for-ONE program offers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities meaningful and enduring partnerships with volunteers from their local community. Volunteers are expected to meet with their ONE-for-ONE partners at least once a month for a minimum of one year and to check in regularly with a Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteers must be over 18, be good listeners, and be willing to provide support, friendship, and positive examples of community engagement.

All participants are required to attend an Orientation/Training session and pass a security background check. Exact meeting locations, dates, and times will be determined by participants and can take place in all 5 boroughs.

Contact Stefanie Nelson at if you would like to volunteer or for additional information.
