Love the Chiefs, baseball, or chess? Friendly Visitor needed in Middle Village
ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services
Please visit the new page to apply.
I have an older adult in Middle Village, Queens who needs someone to visit him. He loves football (the Chiefs), baseball, taking walks outside, chess and checkers. If this sounds like you, this could be your opportunity to make new friends with someone in need of them :)
If you have an hour a week you could dedicate to this lonely senior, please contact me! Friendly visiting is an easy, fun, rewarding way to become involved in your community.
The Friendly Visitor Program at Sunnyside Community Services covers areas of Queens, including Astoria, Elmhurst, East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, Corona, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Flushing, Maspeth, Middle Village, Long Island City, Ridgewood, Sunnyside, Woodside and more.
Friendly Visitors are volunteers who visit homebound seniors for about an hour each week in their homes.
Volunteers reduce feelings of isolation, and help improve seniors' mental and physical health. Seniors are able to stay in their homes and communities longer. Volunteers can dramatically improve the quality of a seniors' life.
The Friendly Visitor Program is funded by grants from CityMeals-on-Wheels and serves homebound seniors who receive meal deliveries. Clients receiving visitors are often unable to go outside on their own and depend on visitors for social interaction.
Friendly Visitors receive training, support and feedback from the Friendly Visiting Coordinator. We will match you with someone who shares your interests and schedule.
