For a frail senior, crossing New York City's busy streets can be an overwhelming challenge. Our volunteers help seniors make trips to the grocery store or pharmacy.
When the weather is bad, or the senior is not up to a trip outside, volunteers can go shopping for them.
We escort seniors to medical appointments to provide them with both a steady arm to lean on and emotional support.
On nice days, our volunteers may walk outside with seniors for exercise, fresh air and companionship.
Our programs and services are funded by a combination of individual donations, community and corporate support, grants form corporations and government funding.
This purposeful blend of support enables us to respond to needs of seniors with greater flexibility than those programs that rely on a single funder, but it also makes de the job of raising enough money to improve and expand our programs a greater challenge.
