Project Cares

Visit Seniors

Though Project Cares, you can provide companionship to residents ages 60 and over who are lonely and socially isolated and who reside in the four senior residences of the Jewish Community Housing Corporation.

Help in a Variety of Ways

Volunteers are able to:

  • Provide friendship, companionship and support
  • Accompany residents to activities in the building
  • Go for walks or sit outside with the resident
  • Play cards or board games with the resident
  • Assist the resident on the computer

Get Training & Support

When you volunteer in this program, you will receive initial training and ongoing support and supervision from Jewish Family Service. We will meet with with you and the participating resident to ensure the success of the match.

Project Cares is funded through the generous support of Enterprise Community Partners, Inc.
