ORGANIZATION: Satellite Affordable Housing Associates

SAHA Logo
In December 2012, Satellite Housing and Affordable Housing Associates merged to create SAHA, an organization dedicated to providing quality, service-enriched affordable housing to East Bay residents.

Help elders get out of their apartments and socialize with their neighbors by calling BINGO. The negative health effects of social Isolation in seniors has been compared with smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. But you can help combat this! BINGO is a way to be around others without demanding conversation. It is also a great way for speakers of different languages to come together through play, and friendly competition. It is also one of the most popular activities at our site.
Volunteer to call BINGO for low income seniors living at Beth Asher Apartments,in the Diamond District of Oakland! We are looking for a volunteer to call BINGO for an hour on Mondays or Wednesdays. The volunteer will facilitate BINGO games, socialize with residents and then straighten up afterwards. BINGO is a very popular activity that is also a great opportunity to build community and keep our residents active!

There is some flexibility in when this volunteer opportunity will happen, but it must be Monday-Friday, between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.

Requirements: Ongoing SAHA Community Volunteers must commit to volunteer once a week for a minimum of 4 months, and must complete a volunteer orientation, volunteer forms and background screening prior to beginning their placement.
