DOROT was founded in 1976 by Columbia University graduates seeking to make a difference for older adults in their community. We provide a dynamic partnership of seniors, volunteers and professionals dedicated to enhancing the lives of older adults to help them live independently as valued members of the community. Our wide array of programs – conducted onsite, in the home, by Zoom and phone, and in the community – are designed to combat loneliness and social isolation. Compassionate care and a commitment to excellence are hallmarks of our programs and staff. 

DOROT serves the Jewish and wider community and offers a lifeline of support to older adults in Manhattan and Westchester and beyond. DOROT is an innovative leader in mobilizing volunteers of all ages to improve the lives and health older adults and address the challenges of an aging society. We bring the generations together in mutually beneficial partnership, engaging over 5,000 older adults and 6,000 volunteers a year in meaningful and impactful programming. To learn more, visit
