About

Citizens Who Care For The Elderly is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization with the mission of improving the quality of life for the elderly and their caregivers.

Our Senior Peer Counseling program provides informal counseling to seniors, 60 or older, who are troubled by loneliness, depression, grief, illness, or other concerns of aging.

The program also provides peer group counseling twice a month in both Woodland and Davis through our Transitions support groups.

Counselors are volunteers age 55 and older. This is a wonderful opportunity for retired social workers or counselors. Peer Counselors receive up to 30 hours of training.
