Hearts and Hands: Faith in Action connects older Americans, those with health concerns, and their care givers in underserved communities with trained volunteers to uphold their dignity to improve quality of life to enhance their ability to live in their home of choice.
Hearts and Hands is a not-for-profit, neighbor-helping-neighbor organization which pairs volunteers with older, frail, and physically challenged adults for door through door transportation and non-medical in-home support. The organization, founded in 2003, provides services to underserved areas in Western New York. Our program is a best efforts and no charge delivery of services. Our focus is on services that enhance nutritional status, foster socialization, increase physical activity, and provide access to medical, dental and other health services. If we cannot provide a requested service, we will refer that request to an agency that is able to meet the need. We work closely with the Alzheimer Association, Meals on Wheels, the Erie Co. Dept. of Senior Services, the local first responders and other area service providers. Currently, the organization serves the areas of Akron-Newstead, Alden, Clarence, Kenmore, Tonawanda, Holland, Marilla, Wales and the Tonawanda Indian Reservation. Hearts and Hands is expanding into Lockport, Amherst, and Boston, NY. Its central offices are at 1412 Sweet Home Road in Amherst, NY. For information, call (716) 406-8311.
