On Lok serves thousands of seniors, enabling them to live with independence and dignity.

Research has proven that social interaction keeps people healthy. Our volunteers talk to seniors, play games with them, lend an ear if an elder wants someone to talk to, and help with recreational activities that are designed to be engaging and therapeutic.

Join our rank of over 200 individual volunteers who help and touch people’s hearts every day at our centers located around the Bay Area.

Volunteering at On Lok can be rewarding. Read what our volunteers say about their experience with us:

…I really take pleasure in getting to know the great seniors and staff. The activities I help out with are innovative, joyful and uplifting. They bring out the best in people.

I love the seniors, they are the sweetest. And the On Lok staff has been so welcoming. On Lok is the perfect match for me.
