    Selfhelp Queens North Friendly Visiting Program

    The Friendly Visitor Program matches homebound seniors with volunteers in the community who make weekly visits in the seniors’ homes. Friendly visiting helps relieve the senior’s social isolation and is an enriching opportunity for the volunteer to develop a meaningful friendship. Seniors and the volunteer can take part in fun activities like playing card games, discussing current events, sharing stories, learning/teaching new skills, and celebrating special days in the lives of the seniors. Your time and companionship as a friendly visitor is invaluable!

    Matches are based on your availability and geographic location.

    Expiration Date: 9/30/2020

    We ask for a minimum commitment of six months of weekly hour-long visits. Volunteers must be 18 years or older. Interview, training, references and background check are required.

    Please contact Christella Tuldanes (Friendly Visiting Program Coordinator) if interested in this volunteer opportunity by emailing friendlyvisiting@selfhelp.net or calling at (718) 321-8194.
