Description & History

HELP OUR SENIORS STAY INDEPENDENT - ALL BOROUGHS

Remaining in their own homes is critical for our seniors and you can help! Compassionate detail-oriented volunteers, using their every-day life skills, are needed to visit seniors and help with the timely payment of monthly bills. All Boroughs - Manhattan (especially 10024, 10036, 10128, 10463 zip codes), Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. Clients make all their own financial decisions but need hands-on help with bill paying tasks such as reviewing mail, organizing bills, writing out checks for the client to sign and reconciling check register to bank statements. Volunteers are screened, fingerprinted, undergo background check and receive detailed procedural instruction and coaching. The commitment is for one year, one or two visits a month for approximately 2-6 hours a month. Dates and times are flexible. Please call 212-602-4195 or email: volunteerbpp@aging.nyc.gov. The Bill Payer program is operated by the NYC Department for the Aging.
