MOWSF volunteer with a senior


Lend a helping hand to make small maintenance repairs in seniors' home!

Handyperson volunteers help create a safer living environment for a variety of homebound senior clients by changing light bulbs, installing smoke detectors, helping with computers, and more. We accept volunteers of all skills levels. Some tasks are as simple as plugging in and testing a microwave, while others may involve making small repairs like securing locks, hanging curtain rods, or installing towel racks.

Volunteer individually and get to personally know a wide variety of our homebound clients through this task-oriented volunteering.

While we require a minimum commitment of four hours per month, volunteer hours are very flexible because of the "on-call" nature of the job. We typically call volunteers as repairs are needed. Volunteers in this program must be at least 18 years old. No car is necessary.

Other requirements include a volunteer training and successful completion of a background check.

Meals On Wheels of San Francisco and its volunteers provide seniors what they need to live independent and dignified lives -- nutritious meals, professional social work, and friendly human contact.

Volunteering in our Good Neighbor program offers the ability to help seniors in a variety of roles. Within the Good Neighbor program, volunteers can choose whether they want to help with grocery shopping, housecleaning, handy work, or foster a friendship with a senior!

Please email or call 415-343-1311 if you are interested.
