Volunteer Advocates for Long Island Seniors Urgently Needed

10.05.2017

Family Service League is seeking volunteers to train as advocates for our Long Island neighbors living in nursing homes, adult homes, and assisted living facilities throughout Suffolk County.  FSL offers initial training classes, ongoing supervision, and continuing education for all volunteer candidates.  Volunteer ombudsmen will visit residents weekly to help them and their families through education, empowerment, and advocacy.   Ombudsmen ensure that residents are safe, comfortable, and able to live with dignity.
