The EMMCA Home Chore Program needs volunteers to help older adults of modest means with a variety of basic household chores such as dusting, vacuuming, laundry, lawn mowing, grocery shopping, and other basic chores. Volunteers help seniors who cannot physically do the chores themselves and who cannot afford to hire help. The assistance provided by volunteers helps seniors to remain independent in their homes.
Your donation of an hour or two of your time per month to help a senior with dusting, vacuuming, mowing, raking, or snow shoveling can make the difference between a senior being able to continue to live in their own home or being forced to give up their independence. Make a difference by becoming a volunteer with the East Madison/Monona Coalition of the Aging Home Chore Program.
Volunteers must fill out an application, complete an interview/orientation process and successfully pass a background/reference check. Volunteers must be reliable and have transportation to and from the client's home. Youth ages 16 and over may volunteer independently. Youth under age 16 may volunteer with an adult.
