About Us

Mission

Hearts and Hands connects caring volunteers with older adults by providing transportation, in-home supports, and caregiver respite to uphold their dignity, improve their quality of life, and enhance their ability to live in their home of choice and to assist their primary caregivers. 

Vision

Together, we see neighbors serving neighbors to foster community connections, live independent and healthy lives. 

Our Services

Our services are delivered at no expense to the care recipient through the best efforts of our dedicated volunteers. We are able to offer these services at no charge through the generous support of the many Friends of Hearts and Hands like you, who believe in our Neighbor Helping Neighbor Volunteer Program.

If you would like to make a life-changing difference in your neighbor's life, please visit our volunteer page or give us a call at (716) 406-8311 ext. 102.

Mondays are the hardest for me because I’m almost with my mom nonstop over the weekend. That’s when it hits me that I’m all she really has. It hits me that she just can’t get up and go out anytime she wants.
