NEW YORK The New York Foundation for Senior Citizens Volunteer Ombudsman Program is announcing a new outreach effort to recruit volunteers in the Queens area to protect the rights of the borough's nursing and adult home residents.

To become a volunteer, applicants must be at least 21 years of age, provide three references, complete a free training program and be willing to serve as a volunteer for a certain number of hours per week.
