Search and Care, a nonprofit, non-sectarian social service agency established in 1972, helps vulnerable, primarily homebound older adults in the community to manage life’s daily activities and access essential services. By providing comprehensive care and companionship, we enable older people to age at home as long as is safely feasible, with quality of life and peace of mind. Since our founding 45 years ago, we have served more than 15,000 clients living in Yorkville, Carnegie Hill and East Harlem—always at no fee whatsoever. The Yorkville Ball is an important source of funding for the vital programs and social services that Search and Care provides. We receive limited public support, relying almost entirely on private contributions, and value the pleasure of your company on this momentous occasion.
