Caring Calls

Caring Calls matches you with an adult volunteer for weekly phone conversations for 8 weeks, to socialize and chat about common interests.

Sign-up for a 30-minute call once a week for 8 weeks. The initial commitment is 8 weeks though many are choosing to extend their matches.

Volunteers are eager to share time with you right now! By joining, you may make a new friendship over the phone and you will also be giving back to the volunteer.

NEW Caring Calls, for LGBTQ+ Identifying Older Adults - Sign up for this special Caring Calls initiative to be matched with an LGBTQ+ college or adult volunteer to discuss interests and explore experiences as part of this shared community. Like the regular Caring Calls model, you will receive 8 weekly phone calls, and you may continue after 8-weeks if you and the volunteer enjoy connecting. This limited opportunity is being conducted in partnership with SAGE and supported through a generous grant from UJA-Federation of New York.

If you're interested in signing up for either of the Caring Calls programs, please call 212-769-2850 or contact
