YOU ARE NOT ALONE (Y.A.N.A.)
S.A.L.T. volunteers make phone contact with persons who live alone. In the first six months of 2007, over 200 calls were made to Flushing residents who live alone. This service provides peace of mind to persons who have physical limitations and also provides personal interaction for some residents who are somewhat isolated.
