Change the life of a homebound senior by visiting them for one hour per week!

The Friendly Visitor Program at Sunnyside Community Services covers all parts 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.
