Built upon an interfaith coalition, trained volunteers of Hearts and Hands- Faith in Action connect frail or vulnerable individuals in underserved communities with needed services:
To uphold their dignity
To improve their quality of life
To enhance their ability to live in their home of choice
To assist their primary caregivers
Hearts and Hands is the premier volunteer organization serving our frail or vulnerable neighbors in rural and suburban Western New York communities.
Our services are delivered at no expense to the care recipient through the best efforts of our dedicated volunteers. We are able to offer these services at no charge through the generous support of the many Friends of Hearts and Hands like you, who believe in our Neighbor Helping Neighbor Volunteer Program.
If you would like to make a life-changing difference in your neighbor's life, please visit our volunteer page or give us a call at (716) 406-8311.

I wanted to do something meaningful with my spare time after retirement. People depend on me; they're thankful for what I do and that's a good feeling.
