Recruiting Organization: Heights & Hills, Inc.

Since 1971, Heights and Hills has helped Brooklyn's older adults age successfully in their communities with independence, dignity and grace.

Our Friendly Visiting program matches volunteers of all ages with home-bound and/or socially isolated seniors for weekly companionship - currently matches are meeting virtually but we hope you and your match can meet in person soon! In person, volunteers and clients go on walks, run errands, cook together, play cards, craft, talk about music, art, sports, politics or whatever else they find they have in common!

Whenever possible Friendly Visitor volunteers are matched with seniors in their own neighborhood. Getting started is easy: fill out a short application, attend a training, speak with a member of the volunteer staff then you’ll have the opportunity to be matched with a new friend.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Training: There is an upcoming general volunteer training being held on January 19th, at 6 pm, via zoom. Please use the following link to register: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0oduipqD0pG9y9ENiwSmx17fsYj4FcHI2B

Contact: Volunteer Program at 718 596-8789, ext. 335 or volunteer@heightsandhills.org for more information. Volunteer applications available at http://www.heightsandhills.org/volunteer/.
