About

As our clients get older, certain tasks become difficult for our clients to do. One of them is mowing their lawns. It brings our clients such joy to be able to look out their windows and see freshly, beautiful cut grass. Many of our clients don't have friends or family who can consistently assist them with yard care and if there is a friend or family member who can help, they are generally so busy with organizing health care and paperwork that yard care falls to the wayside.

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.
