Our phone outreach is the backbone of the Neighbor Network and how we primarily enroll people into the Friendly Calls Program, a social phone conversation program connecting volunteers and older adults. We appreciate your support by making a positive impact in reducing social isolation through outreach calls with us. This is great activity for a company looking for a positive happy hour, groups of individuals looking to make a difference together, students looking for service hours, and any and all individuals that want to make a difference but do not have consistent schedules as calls can be completed on your time following the event if you wish. There are also opportunities to remain involved beyond the event if you choose or you can help once!

The mission of the Neighbor Network is to help to fight social isolation, connect older New Yorkers with the resources they need, and bring joy and comfort to seniors and volunteers alike. This program is based in NYC but all volunteers are welcome! For more information about the Neighbor Network, check out theneighbornetwork.org, or email felicia@theneighbornetwork.org.

About Greenwich House

Location:

27 Barrow Street, New York, NY 10014, US

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.
