Religious, spiritual, or into horoscopes? Friendly visitors needed for Seniors in west/mid-Queens

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services

I currently have older adults in west/mid-Queens who self-describe as religious, spiritual, or into horoscopes. Due to limited mobility, these older adults needs someone to call them weekly -- a conversationalist who shares similar interests in religion, spiritual outlook, or astrology.

Friendly visiting is an easy, fun, rewarding way to become involved in your community. We only ask for one hour per week (or more if YOU chose)!

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.

Please note: You are required to be at least 18 years old and live in the New York Tri-State area (New Jersey, Connecticut).
