Today it was announced that the New York for Seniors initiative has expanded into ‘Senior Outreach Services of New York’, which is a registered 501c3 non-profit, serving seniors throughout New York City.

“Launching Senior Outreach Services of New York makes sense because over the past 4 years we have been doing the work through the New York for Seniors initiative”, stated Wayne Jordan, Executive Director of Senior Outreach Services of New York. “We receive calls daily from seniors and caregivers throughout New York City, inquiring about assistance for transportation, meal delivery, home care, health insurance and just about every other service that is vital to our senior population. The New York for Seniors initiative organically expanded into Senior Outreach Services of New York.”

The immediate goals of Senior Outreach Services of New York will include providing hot meals and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to seniors in New York City during this crucial time during the COVID-19 pandemic. For those who are looking to support Senior Outreach Services of New York are encouraged to DONATE or provide masks, hand sanitizers and gloves.

Jordan added, “we want to start by getting in touch with everyone who has called the New York for Seniors helpline, We received calls over the past 2 weeks from over 100 seniors and caregivers who are looking to have meals delivered to their homes. We don’t want our seniors risking their lives by leaving their homes to buy meals or groceries. We have an opportunity and obligation to assist where we can, and that’s our plan. We will be conducting outreach to our New York for Seniors healthcare partners as well as local elected officials, including the Mayor and Governor, to assist us with this on-going work.”

New York for Seniors reaches tens of thousands of seniors and caregivers throughout New York City, which gives Senior Outreach Services of New York a head start when it comes to immediately reaching seniors in all five boroughs.
