About

Help welcome Nashville’s senior elders to the community, in a relaxed, engaging, and mutually-educational environment. By volunteering as an assistant with Catholic Charities Refugee and Immigration Services Refugee Elders Program, you can provide our clients with community, education, and socialization that, due to their lack of mobility, they might not receive otherwise. Help our refugees elders develop a positive outlook and engage with their new Nashville community. This is a flexible volunteer position and is perfect for someone looking to learn about other cultures, meet new people, and build cross-cultural communication skills. You must have reliable means of transportation (and insurance). Email or call our volunteer coordinator, Emily Sellers, for more information: esellers@cctenn.org; (615) 259-3567, ext. 1199.
