Search and Care


The mission of Search and Care is to seek out older people in the Yorkville and Carnegie Hill communities (East 86th to East 104th Streets, from Fifth Avenue to the East River) who need help in managing life’s daily activities or accessing essential services, and to provide them the support and companionship they require to live with security and dignity. ​This not-for-profit, nonsectarian social service agency has served more than 6,000 residents in these communities since 1972 through a collaboration of experienced social workers, volunteers, student interns (social work, nursing, occupational therapy) and retired financial professionals. ​Volunteers make home visits, help access benefits and entitlements, serve as escorts and shoppers, and provide bill-paying assistance and effective care plans geared to each individual.
