Our programs and services help seniors maintain their independence, by connecting them to someone who cares.
Our services are available to anyone 60 years and older who is mentally sound, emotionally stable, and able to interact with others. We serve seniors in lower Manhattan, south of 30th Street, from the East River to the Hudson. Our Friendly Visiting program also serves seniors living in the Forest Hills/Rego Park community of Queens.
Whether you can make a commitment of a few hours every week, or just help out occasionally, there are many ways for you to become involved with the elderly community. You can volunteer weekly and be matched with one senior, or if you'd prefer, you can be designated as "on call." We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, sexual preference, or lifestyle. If you would like to help seniors as they face the challenges of aging alone in New York City, we will find a way for you to volunteer.
We can always use extra help with special events.
