About

A senior man living in First Hill prefers someone who speaks Amharic or Tigrinya (he does speak English as well) to help him around his apartment on First Hill. He visually impaired and would love someone to come for a visit once in a while to cook, clean, and help him do laundry. He is also interested in learning more about American culture.

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income elders and persons living with disabilities. Volunteers can provide assistance with light housecleaning, transportation, grocery shopping, home repair and yard care. With a little help from volunteers, clients can continue to live independently in their homes.

Due to the vulnerable population we serve, volunteers must complete an application form, pass a Washington State Patrol check and attend an orientation
