Volunteer to Connect with older New Yorkers by making Friendly Phone Calls!

The Neighbor Network is seeking virtual volunteers for our Friendly Calls Program to reduce social isolation! Volunteers are matched with seniors for regular friendly telephone conversation to build friendships and keep older adults connected to community resources. We ask that volunteers commit to at least 3 months but hope that is just the beginning of a friendship. Calls can occur on any day of the week and at any regular schedule that both the volunteer and the older adult agree to. Most matches talk once every other week but some talk less frequently and some talk more frequently.
