Put a Smile on a Senior's Face Today!
We’ve all felt a little isolated since the Pandemic. Older adults, often sequestered in their homes, feel this most poignantly. That’s where you come in. With Friendly Visiting and Senior Chat you can connect over the phone or Zoom and develop a friendship with a special person.
Please note that all volunteers must be at least 18 years old and live in the New York tri-state area (New York, New Jersey or Connecticut). There is a minimum commitment of 6 months.
Please reach out to the program coordinator, Emma Finn, to offer the service of connection today!
