The Neighbor Network is a volunteer-based non-profit program aimed at diminishing isolation among NYC seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers are matched with seniors to have regular calls for friendly conversations, connect older New Yorkers with the resources they need, and build relationships that will bring joy and comfort to seniors and volunteers alike.
In this program, volunteers can reach to potentially isolated neighbors for initial outreach through a phone bank or be matched for regular recurring calls. Phone banking is a 100% flexible commitment. We ask that volunteers commit to at least 3 months if they would like to make regular calls. Calls can occur on any day of the week on your own schedule.
If you are a senior who would like to be a volunteer, come join us too! We also have special opportunities for corporate and community groups. Please reach out for details on one time group volunteer options.
Join the Neighbor Network and be a good neighbor to your fellow seniors! For more information: https://theneighbornetwork.org/

Greenwich House helps individuals and families lead more fulfilling lives by offering social and health services, cultural and educational programs, and opportunities for civic involvement to New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds.

Greenwich House programs are a valuable resource to our neighbors and those who work in, visit or seek care in the Village.
