Greenwich House

The Neighbor Network is seeking virtual volunteers to make phone calls to check in on older adults living in Queens. These calls will connect older adults on Sunnyside's case management waitlist to critical resources and provide important support and connection. Volunteers will check in with their assigned senior matches on a regular basis (weekly or biweekly) to check on resource needs and provide social conversation.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

Founded in 1902 as a settlement house to help New York’s increasing immigrant population adjust to life in a new country, today Greenwich House offers programs in social services, arts and education that provide thousands of New Yorkers with personal enrichment and cultural experiences.

Greenwich House programs are a valuable resource to our neighbors and those who work in, visit or seek care in the Village. Whether it is a class at the Music School, Pottery, After-School or Summer Arts Camp, socializing at one of our senior centers, counseling at the Children’s Safety Project or treatment at the Chemical Dependency Program, our professional, well-trained staff ensures that everyone receives the care and service they need to live a more fulfilling life. Each individual at Greenwich House- be they educators, artists, social workers, students, therapists, volunteers or donors-helps to contribute to this unique, caring community of friends and neighbors in New York.
