In March 2020, we launched the JASAChat program to connect volunteers with seniors for a weekly phone or video chat. JASAChat volunteers help to combat social isolation and loneliness among older adults living in New York City. JASAChat is flexible with your schedule and only requires a 20 minute to hour long commitment weekly.

The need for volunteers continues to grow and we hope you will sign up to be part of our caring community.

Seniors and their families count on us, and we count on you! (ages 18+)

Please note this is a three month commitment.
