Canopy of Neighbors Board Member opportunity

ORGANIZATION: Canopy of Neighbors

Canopy of Neighbors is looking for Board members to help us serve the elder community in Buffalo.

Canopy of Neighbors is a non-profit organization creating new pathways to aging well and aging independently in community. Part of the national "village" movement, Canopy services a socioeconomically and culturally diverse population of seniors who need non-medical and non-social service supports to remain in their homes. Our volunteers drive seniors to crucial medical and social appointments, engage in friendly visits, volunteer help and socialization. We also run a robust programming schedule, which includes transportation. Our efforts are crucial to mitigating the negative effects of social isolation and allows seniors to remain in their communities and maintain positive mental and physical health outcomes.

Board members meet 5-6X/year for one-hour meetings, usually Tuesdays from 5-6pm. We are especially in need of volunteers with Non-Profit Governance and Finance experience, but all contributions of time, talent and treasure are welcome! Please call Sasha Yerkovich, Executive Director, at 716-235-8133, or at for more detailed information.
