The Southeast Queens (SEQ) Wellness Ambassadors initiative is spearheaded by a team of local residents including Melva Miller, Nantasha Williams, Dr. Stacie N.C. Grant, Erica Ford, Kevin Livingston, Franck Joseph, and Katherine Thompson, Clarisa James, Jessica Douglas, Emmlynn Taylor, and David Tanis. The volunteer initiative has the political support of Senator Leroy Comrie and Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndman who also serve as core members of the leadership team. In partnership with local senior centers, the Southeast Queens Wellness Ambassadors goal is to facilitate wellness check in calls with Seniors in the community by providing conversation, and asking Seniors if their immediate needs are being met at this time of crisis. The initiative started on April 1st, 2020. There are currently 63 community volunteers working on the initiative. In the first week of the initiative, 234 calls were made. The initiative works most directly with the Robert Couche Senior Center and both offices of Services Now for Adult Persons (SNAP) in Office of Southeast Queens. The goal of the program is to service as many seniors as possible with wellness calls and we we are in need of additional volunteers.
