About

A First Hill senior is quickly losing her mobility and vision and she needs your help to do light housework and food preparation, which are increasingly more difficult for her to do on her own. Due to her age, she requires someone who is patient and caring to work with her on her memory loss. She is looking for a friendlly and consistant volunteer who could visit once or twice a month to help her out.

VS is a program of Catholic Community Services. VS provides volunteers who help with the living independence of low-income elders and people living with disabilities. Volunteers are matched to someone based on their interest and volunteering is done on YOUR schedule, in YOUR neighborhood!

Just help once to four times a month doing housework, shopping, transportation, yard work, minor home repair, or companionship and make a huge difference in someone's life. Mileage reimbursed, orientation provided, and background check required. Location shown is VS office; client location given after orientation.
