Please visit the new page to apply.
Do you like to...
- meet new people?
- help your older neighbor(s) in need?
We're looking for friendly people like you to make a difference in the Lockport community!
Hearts and Hands matches caring, reliable volunteers with older community members who have essential needs, like transportation, to ensure they can continue living independently.
You can help your senior neighbor remain independent by spending as little as two hours a month providing them a ride to their medical appointment, grocery store, or to run errands. Transportation volunteers spend time with a neighbor having friendly conversation while helping them get to appointments. Time spent helps your neighbor to feel less lonely and isolated, and is a great way for them to continue connecting with the community.
We make volunteering easy!
- Select requests that fit your schedule and interests. Volunteering is flexible!
- Supplemental insurance coverage and mileage reimbursement is provided.
How do you get started?
Simply fill out our online application at volunteerhnh.org, attend a training with your local office (or virtually), submit your background check, and in about two weeks you can start your meaningful experience with Hearts and Hands. For additional information call (716) 406-8311 ext. 102.
About Hearts and Hands
2057 Genesee St, Buffalo, NY 14211, US
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.
