PBHA’s HARTZ program sends volunteers to visit nursing home patients as a group and entertain the residents by playing bingo, leading art classes, coordinating outings to Boston landmarks, and planning holiday-themed parties.

The Cambridge Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is a 10-15 minute walk from Harvard Square. HARTZ volunteers serve from approximately 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Saturdays.
