Review for DOROT, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The opportunity to volunteer at Dorot, and form a meaningful relationship with a brilliant and appreciative elder in New York City has enriched my life and my teenage son's life. Together we regularly visit a homebound elderly man, bringing him some holiday-related foods supplied by Dorot. When the elderly man expressed a concern about his health to me, I called Dorot who put me in touch with a social worker who said she would follow-up. Dorot is responsive and respectful of volunteers, not an easy thing to find in NYC.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

My teenage son and I have visited with several elderly people, but have had several visits with a particular elderly man who has such a rich varied history. It has been mutually rewarding - for the elder and for us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff is so pleasant and appreciative and respectful of the volunteers - it makes it a pleasure to commit time to Dorot.
