The Warwick Friendly Visitor Program is a free service for older people in Warwick and/or people with special needs. The service matches volunteers with people in their own homes or apartments who might need transport for shopping, doctors or help with simple tasks. All volunteers are vetted and insured so beneficiaries can feel confident inviting them into their homes. If you or someone you know would like to use this service, please call (845)-986-1124, ext. 400, and leave your name, phone number and date of your call. Someone will call you back.

The Warwick Friendly Visitor Program will be hosting volunteer training sessions on Wednesday February 9 at 5:30 p.m. and Thursday February 24 at 10:00 a.m. for those wishing to help an older person in our community. Sessions are only 90 minutes long and your rewards for serving your fellow man will last a lifetime. To reserve a spot, email [email protected] or call (845)-341-1173, ext. 305. Our program is governed by a volunteer board that meets quarterly here at City Hall. We are currently looking for a Chair to lead meetings and coordinate policy to ensure the program fulfills its mission for our seniors. If you are interested, please call (845)-986-1120, ext. 241.
