Queens Community House’s Friendly Visiting Program seeks volunteers to provide thoughtful and engaging weekly phone calls to isolated older adults with range of interests, hobbies, religious and political beliefs. Visits can be either in person or via phone.

This particular client is a transplant from Cairo by way of Oklahoma City, Miami, and California. He now lives in Elmhurst, but he worked in the hotel industry for many years. He loves comedy shows especially Last Man Standing. He's very social and enjoys talking with others. He is available for weekly phone calls or visits any Monday, Wednesday or Friday afternoon after 3 pm.

To become a friendly visitor, you will have to complete an application and some other paperwork, provide two personal/professional references, consent to a background check, interview and then complete a 90-minute training. The process can take two to four weeks. We ask that you commit to at least six months once the right match is found for you. There is short weekly reporting of your visits or calls and check-ins every few months.

If interested, email us at volunteer@qchnyc.org
