About us

http://connect2ny.orgConnect2 offers companionship and support to Holocaust survivors living throughout New York City. Men and women volunteer to visit survivors in their homes for one hour each week Connect2 does not simply provide a direct service to the survivor. Volunteers and survivors are carefully matched to give young people an opportunity to connect with a unique part of our community and build strong and fulfilling friendships. In addition to critical socialization and providing assistance with shopping and personal organizing, the volunteers read to survivors, go with them for walks and accompany them to doctor visits. Volunteers hear extraordinary stories, learn courage and perseverance by living example, and have the honor of sharing with very deserving individuals. These inter-generational friendships ensure the past will not be forgotten. Our program began in September 2001. Since then, our team of volunteers have made thousands of visits.
