Services Now for Adult Persons, Inc. (SNAP) is a social service agency providing for the needs of senior citizens residing in the borough of Queens. Our volunteer program assists seniors living independently in their own homes and helps them to remain independent for as long as possible
Some of the services we can provide to a homebound senior through our volunteers include:
Seniors benefit greatly from friendly companionship. A once a week visit to chat, play cards or take a slow walk through the neighborhood can really make a difference.
CONFERENCE CALL CHATS
Our teleconference system enables seniors to participate in activities they enjoy, while speaking with others who hold the same interests. Book Clubs and Bingo are currently offered.
Would you like to facilitate a new group?
If time does not permit for friendly visiting, but you would like to help, we offer our telephone reassurance program. As a volunteer you would call a few seniors each week to chat. A friendly phone call can be the reassuring voice to brighten a senior’s day.Please consider volunteering. Senior citizens are our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, teachers, neighbors and friends. Please consider giving back to them a measure of what they have given us. To inquire about getting a match for yourself or a loved one, or if interested in becoming a volunteer please contact:
