Akron/Newstead Volunteers Needed for Friendly Visits With a Senior Neighbor
Please visit the new page to apply.
Ready to help a neighbor feel more connected to their community? You can help a caregiver receive a well-needed break through caring, meaningful interactions by spending two hours a month with a senior neighbor in need.
Hearts and Hands matches caring, reliable volunteers with older community members who have essential needs like caregiver support, to ensure they can continue living independently.
Caregiver support volunteers spend time with a neighbor having friendly conversation, playing games, watching television, or even reading the newspaper. Time spent allows for caregivers to receive the respite they need, and deserve, to make their own appointments and catch up on errands.

About Hearts and Hands

Hearts and Hands is a nonprofit organization that matches caring, reliable volunteers with older community members who have essential needs, like transportation, to ensure they can continue living independently.
Hearts and Hands is a not-for-profit, neighbor-helping-neighbor organization which pairs volunteers with older, frail, and physically challenged adults for door through door transportation and non-medical in-home support. The organization, founded in 2003, provides services to underserved areas in Western New York. Our program is a best efforts and no charge delivery of services. Our focus is on services that enhance nutritional status, foster socialization, increase physical activity, and provide access to medical, dental and other health services. If we cannot provide a requested service, we will refer that request to an agency that is able to meet the need. We work closely with the Alzheimer Association, Meals on Wheels, the Erie Co. Dept. of Senior Services, the local first responders and other area service providers. Currently, the organization serves Erie County and Niagara County - Lockport and North Tonawanda.
