Senior Services Program

Our Senior Services Program trains volunteers to serve vulnerable older adults in Onondaga County. For 30 years, our Senior Companion Program has recruited low-income seniors to be volunteer companions for vulnerable older adults, providing them crucial support to maintain their independence. The program is the only free service of its kind in our area; companions receive a stipend for their service. Our One-to-One program places volunteers to serve as friendly visitors to isolated elders in nursing homes – these residents have no family, faith community, or friendship circle nearby. There are no requirements to be a One-to-One volunteer.
