Mission Statement

Are you an morning person? Enjoy helping People? We need your help....Senior Roll Call Lifeline is a Free program provided by New Castle County that calls the homes of its subscribers every day to ensure the welfare of its elderly residents, and disabled, many of which live alone. Daily phone calls are made to those enrolled to make sure they are doing well and do not require emergency assistance. If after several attempts the calls are unsuccessful, help is sent to the home to check on the well-being of the subscriber.

Senior Roll Call was started in 1995, by then, Colonel Thomas P. Gordan, and the system has helped make countless "saves" for individuals who have suffered a debilitating injury or ailment leaving them unable to help themselves. The program is supported by volunteers who are desperately needed.

Volunteers monitor the calls that are made by an automated dialer. We listen for distressed voices, answering machines, no answers and busy signals. The volunteer than will take steps until we make contact with the subscriber or send assistance.

Volunteer hours are available between 6:30 am and 11:00 am, seven days a week at the New Castle County Public Safety Building located at 3601 N. Dupont Hwy, New Castle, De 19720. A back ground check is required. There is no physical labor required, just patience and a good ear.

If you think this could be a good fit for you please contact, Kimberly Beckman at (302)895-8057.
