Senior Home Visiting Program in Chinatown

According to an analysis of the latest census trends by the Asian American Federation, Chinese seniors had the largest increase in senior poverty rates among all Asian groups. As many of our seniors get older, it is harder for them to do simple tasks around the house. TAP will be piloting a new program with Asian Americans for Equality to develop a volunteer base where participants can perform one-time pre-screened tasks for these seniors. Our mission is to improve the quality of life and living conditions for low-income residents in Manhattan's Chinatown and Lower East Side.

Due to the number of seniors affected by Hurricane Sandy in the Chinatown area, for those volunteers who can stay longer, we will help support the local relief efforts in the neighborhood afterwards. Tasks may include delivering food to elderly tenants stuck in their apartments or helping seniors fill out forms for new food stamps etc. The needs change daily.
