Korean speaking volunteers need to provide weekly phone calls to isolated older adults!
Queen Community House's Friendly Visiting Program matches homebound older adults with volunteers in their community who make weekly phone and/or video calls, creating intergenerational relationships in Central and Southeast Queens. We're currently in need of Korean speaking volunteers to provide social engagement to Korean speaking older adults in our community. Friendly visiting is an enriching opportunity for the volunteer to develop a meaningful friendship. Together, the older adult and volunteer can discuss shared interests, learn/teach new skills, read books, learn technology, and celebrate special holidays.
The program also aims to reduce isolation and loneliness amongst seniors in our neighborhoods and communities. Friendly visitors must be 18 and over, be open to committing to 6 months of volunteerism, and a background check is required to participate in the program.
