Enter a Supportive Relationship with One Adult with a Disability

About this Opportunity

Do For One is looking for individuals who are interested in entering into a supportive one-on-one relationship with an adult with a developmental disability living in NYC. 

Many adults with disabilities live in profound social isolation and can benefit greatly from being selectively matched with a person who enjoys more of the ordinary privileges in life such as being connected to a healthy community and being a valued member of society. 

Our vision is a future where the world is keenly aware of the problems people with disabilities face. That knowledge prompts radical personal action to address those needs. Inclusion replaces exclusion, as communities grow in strength and diversity. 

All volunteers are required to attend an orientation and have a conversation with staff so we can get to know you more. Matches are made with the person with disabilities’ best interests at the center so it may take time and not all volunteers are matched right away. 

We value volunteers who are able to enter a long-term relationship with no immediate plans to move away from NYC. We are particularly in need of more male volunteers, though all are welcome!
