Mission Statement

The New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) is the largest Area Agency on Aging (AAA) in the United States with more than 35 years of experience addressing the needs of older New Yorkers. Among DFTA's functions are: overseeing and supporting a network of senior centers, case management agencies, and home delivered meal providers; managing contracts with providers that offer these core services as well as other DFTA-funded programs such as Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities and elder abuse prevention initiatives; conducting innovative research and evaluating programs that serve New York's older adult population; conducting legislative advocacy; and educating the public about aging issues.

Description

The Volunteer Resource Center was launched in 2014 by the NYC Department for the Aging to promote, increase, and strengthen volunteerism, civic engagement, and community service for the Agency's programs that provide vital supports and services for NYC seniors.
