Senior living in a mobile home in Shelton needs help with light house work, even just once a month would be a great help! Due to mobility issues, he has been unable to keep up with vacuuming, sweeping, and changing his bed sheets. Although he has had some friends helping out when they can, an extra helping hand would be greatly appreciated and would make a huge difference for him! If you have a couple hours a month of time to donate and are interested in light house work, this may be a perfect volunteer opportunity!

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Location:

129 Decatur Street NW, Olympia, WA 98502, US

Mission Statement

We believe every child should grow up in a safe, loving and nurturing environment We believe the elderly should be able to live with security and dignity. We believe healthy family life should be affirmed and supported in our communities We believe in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially the poor and most vulnerable. We believe in joining with others to change systems that oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering. We believe employees and volunteers should work in an environment that fosters respect, teamwork and excellence. We believe in all of these things for all people, whatever their color, whatever language they speak or however they worship.

Description

Our program exists as a safety net for low-income elders and people with disabilities (also low-income)by providing them with services that allow them to remain living as independently as possible in their own homes (not assisted living). For example, a 89 year old woman who only collects $600/mo. in Social Security needs help with her lawn. She can't afford to pay someone, and if her lawn goes a couple of months without being mowed, now the lawn is a fire hazard.
