Far Rockaway Volunteers needed to help older adults

Save to Favorites

Services Now for Adult Persons

Our agency runs a Friendly Visiting Program which matches adults over 60 years of age that are homebound and isolated with volunteers for about an hour a week to help lessen their social isolation. Covid 19 has had a huge impact on these members of our community. Those that may not have been so isolated now cannot socialize at all. Also due to Covid -19 restrictions, our volunteers are currently not allowed to have any physical in person contact with our clients. So Friendly phone calls are very important and hopefully a temporary fix to in person visiting that one day, will most likely resume.

If you are convenient to the Far Rockaway area and would be willing to call a homebound client once or twice a week and there is a chance you might be able to conduct some in person visits once the pandemic is over, please contact Suzanne at Imasnapvolunteer@gmail.com or answer this plea for volunteers. Our volunteers have such an impact on these distinguished and deserving members of our community.

Thank you.
