Meets pressing community needs by mobilizing caring New Yorkers in volunteer service.

Afternoon Social with Selfhelp Community Services in Brooklyn


Afternoon Social with Selfhelp Community Services in Brooklyn

Help throw an afternoon gathering for Holocaust Survivors living in Brooklyn. Volunteers will spend the afternoon serving lunch, dancing and mingling with the seniors. Assistance is needed throughout the event with everything from set-up and meal preparation and service to clean-up and helping the seniors to their cars after the event.


Selfhelp is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to maintaining the independence and dignity of seniors and at-risk populations through a spectrum of housing, home health care and social services, and will lead in applying new methods and technologies to address changing needs of its community. Selfhelp will continue to serve as the “last surviving relative” to its historic constituency, victims of Nazi persecution.

Selfhelp was founded in 1936 to help waves of émigrés fleeing from Nazi persecution find new lives in America. As this population reaches their 80s and 90s, we remain in their lives, enabling them to retain their well-earned independence and quality of life.
