If you are up for a meaningful, regular assignment with one of our clients, we would love to hear from you. We match select volunteers with individuals living independently and (usually) alone in the community. We call it "neighbor helping neighbor."

Your assignment might include going for a ride, shopping assistance, or just visiting at the person's home. Laughter, stories and shared experiences with a new friend are expected and encouraged!

If you enjoy people and really want to make an impact in the life of someone in your community this might be the role for you. Assignments usually are once a week or once every other week.

Please ask about our other volunteer opportunities too.
