Riseboro Community Partnership

  • 2 people are interested

Riseboro Community Partnership está buscando voluntarios que estén interesados en pasar una hora de la semana conversando por teléfono con un ciudadano de la tercera edad. Nuestros ciudadanos de la tercera edad no pueden salir a la comunidad y están buscando un compañero con quien reír, hablar y disfrutar de su tiempo! Nuestro objetivo es hacer la transición de nuestras coincidencias telefónicas a coincidencias físicas una vez que se levantan las reglas de distanciamiento social, sin embargo, hay espacio para que los voluntarios mantengan relaciones telefónicas solo con las personas mayores con las que se relacionan. ¡Esta es una amistad mutuamente gratificante, donde puedes aprender sobre las personas mayores en tus vecindarios, sus estilos artísticos, intereses y los cambios que se han producido en la comunidad a lo largo de los años! Servimos a un grupo diverso de personas mayores y buscamos personas de todos los orígenes y edades (de 18 años en adelante) para ayudarnos a que nuestros adultos mayores se sientan más conectados con sus comunidades. Este programa de visitas amistosas está financiado por el Departamento para el Envejecimiento de Nueva York.

Description

The Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council was founded in 1973 as a senior service provider in the Ridgewood and Bushwick communities.
