The devil is a lie and self help is the devil . Please avoid working here and even getting their services idk who paying these people to write 5 star reviews, but only God knows. These sick people love to pride them selves on having mentors.. and peer coaches... WHAT A LOAD OF CROC first off none of these devils help you .. most of the slave masters right handers run around keeping the rest of the slaves in check I am not naming names miss june..liz...frances... Margie the whole old hag squad .... In all reality 13 an hr for WHAT there is not enough money in this world that would make me lower my standards to be a part of a scam agency. You people like to bring God into your b.s please you dont know the truth of God, and whats actually coming for you heathens. Run along in youll little lives and keep pretending that you people are making a difference and you guys are the best because most of your reviews say different. We are in the last hour on this filth ridden earth,and I damn sure wouldn't be even caught dead working for you scum of the earth

They are people trained to do nothing. Theybalways call put. They are most times rude and disrepsectful. They get paid to come to ur house to sit in a chair and stare at their phoe. Or tell u what to do, make more work for you. THIS AGENCY IS A SCAM AND IS GETTING GRANT MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT TO TRAIN PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING THEY ARENT ALLOWED TO DO ANYTBING ITS THE WORST COMPANY FOR GETTING AN AIDE

To Whom It May Concern, My name is Julia and I am writing to thank you for allowing me to be a part of your program , I was referred by a friend and upon joining it has been beneficial to me in a tremendous numbers of ways. I have met new friends, learned a lot from the variety of classes you make available , the interactions between the facilitator and the class makes you feel like you are all together even though we are all in various places. I am bed ridden and has been for the last few years but your classes has given me a new outlook I have started exercising and may I say even though it is a challenge I do enjoy it. The simplest thing like open chat has created a online community where we can all come and laugh and encourage each other. I am writing this letter to thank you for providing us with these many opportunities but to also ask for your assistance to reach others within my community and allow more seniors to enjoy the wonderful resources and companionship of others from the comfort of their own home. Being a elderly and bed bound one may think there isn't much to do and they may even be right to some extension if they don't have a program like yours to help each day go by more comfortably. This program has given me a way to still be involved and have less limitations .and it is this freedom that you have provided me with that I would love to extend to other in similar situations as my own, by extending it to my neighborhood so I am asking if there is anyway that you can assist in broadening the scope of this program it would be greatly appreciated.

Selfhelp's Virtual Senior Center is a profoundly impactful service for the lives of NYC's senior community. My octogenarian grandmother recently signed up for the service after learning about it at her local community center. Selfhelp set her up with an Internet connection and a computer with VSC's software. The VSC software was a perfect introduction to the world of computing for my Grandmother. The software conceals much of the complexity of the computer and allows Grandma to focus on the essential basics of using a computer. She can now surf the Internet, email and make a Skype call. Having a tech savvy family member help with some introductory lessons is ideal. Simple lessons on how to use a mouse and how to type into a Google search box made a big difference in her enjoyment and engagement. The local community and classes are excellent. Grandma is now engaged with new people from her neighborhood, and the service is lifting her spirits at a time of decreased mobility. The classes are on interesting topics. After taking a recent class, Grandma recently gave me an update on the profound impact of 3D printing of all things. This is a remarkable service that deserves kudos.

In May of this year, my 89 year old mother called me with "a problem". While at her local senior center, she was informed that she was eligible for the services of Self Help Virtual Senior Center which would provide her with a computer free of charge. She would be able to access the internet, Skype, email and participate in online classes with other seniors in the program. Mom wondered if this could be true. Could such a service exist and if it did would it be too difficult to learn how to use a computer at her age? After speaking with the facilitators at VSC, we were convinced that this was a great program for Mom. Her advanced age leaves her homebound more than she would like and the chance to socialize from home would be most welcome. The computer was set up by George. He was kind and competent and gave Mom enough instruction to get her started. He assured her that help with any issues was readily available and provided her with all of the contacts that she needed. The computer has a large screen and keyboard and is perfect for her. After a few more hours of hands on instruction by family members and the computer basic course provided, Mom was navigating the internet, using Google and Wikipedia to find the answers to the many questions she has on any given day. She accesses email, plays Solitaire and enjoys many hours of entertainment on You-Tube. Skype calls with her children and grandchildren are a wonderful new experience as are the daily classes offered with VSC. The staff at VSC have been so helpful and respectful of the elderly. Special thanks to Hang, George and Peter who have been so kind to Mom. Thank you all so much for the service that you provide. It is a wonderful program!
