Mission Statement

In Service of Seniors: Pittsburgh (ISOS), a program of Wesley Family Services, has a mission to maximize the independence of older adults in Allegheny County through practical volunteer-based supports.

Description

In Service of Seniors: Pittsburgh is a part of the Open Your Heart to a Senior (OYHS) initiative of the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania. 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 database 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 appointments, friendly visiting, helping a senior with low vision read their mail, and more!

We also offer Medicare counseling through our APPRISE program and home safety checks for seniors through the Safety for Seniors program.
