Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Contribute 2-3 hours per month - at a time that works best for YOU to help a low-income elder continue to live independently at home.
This is a wonderful and very powerful volunteer-based program for vulnerable, low-income elders in the community whose mental or physical condition makes it difficult to carry out the routine task of money management.
The mission of the program is to promote the dignity and autonomy of elders who do not have family or friends nearby who they can rely on.
Volunteer bill payers have helped prevent evictions due to:
non-payment of rent,
loss of utility and phone service,
premature placement of elders in nursing homes
Financial expertise is NOT required
To learn more about this opportunity to make an immediate and dramatic difference in the life of an elder, please contact Kate at Ethos - firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-477-6622.
