FRIENDLY PHONE CALLS
Would you be interested in receiving a weekly call from a like-minded volunteer? We have many friendly SJJCC trained volunteers looking forward to connecting with you.
TECH HELPLINE FOR THE 60+ COMMUNITY
At a time where we’re online more than ever, a little technical support goes a long way. UJA-Federation of New York’s Tech Helpline, in partnership with Older Adults Technology Services and Senior Planet, provides advice over the phone to questions such as:
- How do I get an attachment to open?
- What happened to my WIFI?
- How does someone see me on a Zoom call?
- I touched something, and now the screen is blank
The helpline is free and is available in English, Russian, and Spanish. Call 1.888.510.6299 Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm for help. This program is generously funded by the Solomon Family Foundation and the J.E. & Z.B. Butler Foundation.
