ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services

We have a large population of older adults throughout western Queens and specifically East Elmhurst looking for friendly visitors. A friendly visitor is a companion for senior who visits them in their home once a week in order to reduce social isolation and improve the senior's quality of life.

With your friend, you can:

  • Develop a friendship with a senior
  • Hear interesting stories
  • Talk about favorite books & movies
  • Play board games
  • Attend workshops together


Please note that all volunteers must be over 18 years old and live in New York City and New Jersey or Connecticut.
