Volunteer with the Friendly Visitor program in The Town of Woodbury. This 90-minute Zoom training will prepare you to provide support to older adults in your own community in as little as 30 minutes. Our volunteers provide local transportation to essential appointments, grocery shopping and phone check in calls/friendly visits-Covid 19 social distancing observed. Volunteering is rewarding and flexible. Reservations are required. Background checks and Insurance while volunteering is provided.  The Town of Woodbury Friendly Visitor program partners with JFS of Orange County and the Office for the Aging to support neighbors in Woodbury.  

In our town, many older adults and those who have disabilities live alone and enjoy their independence. Unfortunately, some are isolated, separated from their families, or are in need of a caring friend. Simple gestures can make a difference; they help your neighbor feel connected to the community. Individuals can remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Our Friendly Visitor Program is committed to supporting our residents by helping them remain in their homes. We do this by matching local volunteers with residents that need support.
