Hearts & Hands
The Caring in our Hearts in the work in our hands

Do you like to...

  • meet new people?
  • help your older neighbors in need?

We're looking for friendly people like you to make a difference in the Buffalo Community!

Hearts and Hands connects caring volunteers with older adults by providing transportation to uphold their dignity, improve their quality of life, and enhance their ability to live in their home of choice and assist their primary caregivers.

You can help your 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!
  • Volunteer Coordinators handle all of the arrangements.
  • Supplemental insurance coverage and mileage reimbursement is provided.

How do you get started?

Simply fill out our online application at volunteerhnh.org, attend a 1-hour 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.

Hearts and Hands - Together, we see neighbors serving neighbors to foster community connections, live independent and healthy lives.

Mission Statement

Hearts and Hands connects caring volunteers with older adults by providing transportation, in-home supports, and caregiver respite to uphold their dignity, improve their quality of life, and enhance their ability to live in their home of choice and to assist their primary caregivers.

Description

Hearts and Hands is a non-profit organization that matches caring, reliable volunteers with older community members who have essential needs, like transportation, to ensure that they can continue living independently. 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 and Eastern Niagara Counties.
