If you are 60 or older and live in New York City, sign up here to receive calls! You can also sign someone else up as long as they agree to be in the program. If you prefer to enroll over the phone, call us at (914) 573-5526 and leave a voicemail; we’ll call you back to conduct intake.
If you sign up, we will get you matched with a trained volunteer as soon as you can. The volunteer will call you once a week or so (you can indicate your preference when you sign up) just to chat and get to know each other. You can find more information here. If you have any questions about what it means to sign up, email email@example.com or call us at (914) 573-5526 and leave a voicemail. We’ll call you back to answer your questions.
Volunteers must complete a 1-hour zoom training to begin calls. If you don’t see any trainings that fit your schedule or interests, please fill out this form to receive updates when we schedule more trainings.

Sign up for a phone banking event to reach isolated seniors (must be 16 or over to volunteer). After the event, you will be able to continue phone banking on your own time.
You can volunteer for any of our programs regardless of where you live. You don’t even have to live in New York City to help out!
Can’t make any of the trainings linked above? Sign up HERE to receive updates when we schedule more sessions! You will receive updates about when to sign up for the following programs:
-Our program in collaboration with Greenwich House, to call seniors from around NYC who have signed up to receive friendly calls.
-Our vaccine support program, to reach out to seniors with the goal of assisting them through the process of signing up for and receiving vaccines.

…And more programs in the works!
