Family & Children’s Association Seeking Ombudspersons

Helping Others Also Helps Yourself

Family and Children’s Association is seeking volunteers for its long-standing Ombudservice Program, part of a statewide network of certified volunteers who visit nursing homes, adult homes and assisted living facilities in Nassau County. Ombudspersons serve as advocates for residents and their families.

If you are looking for a meaningful way to improve the quality of life for our frail, sick and elderly neighbors who currently reside in long-term care facilities, this program is for you. Family & Children’s is planning a training class for March; training is held two days per week during a three-week period from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Family & Children’s offices in Mineola.
