Description

In Service of Seniors: Pittsburgh (formerly IVC) is a part of the Open Your Heart to a Senior (OYHS) initiative of the United Way of Allegheny County. Seniors who need some extra support to live independently at home and feel connected to their community are matched with volunteers in their neighborhood.

Volunteers are able to have flexible/self-service scheduling through an online program which allows volunteers to view and select activities that they would like to do. Some of the activities available are grocery shopping for or with an older adult, providing rides to an appointment, friendly visiting, helping with simple yard work, special events and more!

In Service of Seniors: Pittsburgh (ISOS) partners with local religious congregations, universities, community groups, families and individual volunteers. ISOS/OYHS is a program of Family Services of Western PA with a mission "to maximize the independence and overcome the isolation of the frail elderly in Allegheny County."
