Who We Are
With more than 40 years of experience, Visiting Neighbors has been helping seniors in New York City, New York, live meaningful and active lives by matching them with one of our dedicated volunteers. Our programs and services help seniors maintain their independence by connecting them with someone who cares. Our volunteers help escort seniors to and from appointments or the grocery store, all while getting to know each other. Our goal is to provide a helping hand to our community's elderly who may not have family or friends nearby. "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" has been the guiding concept behind our organization since our founding in 1972 by eight Greenwich Village community members.
Our mission is to help provide a lifeline - keeping seniors independent and connected to the community. We make it possible for older people to enjoy the freedom of living in the familiar surroundings of their own cherished apartments. We befriend our older neighbors, and celebrate their individuality and spirit.
