Volunteer Services

We are looking for people who have served in the military or familiar with working with veterans who are interested in helping our clients who served in the military with transportation. Many of our clients need assistance getting to and from the VA. Additionally, some needs help with accessing food and other services. You can give 2-8 hours a month.

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 background check, provide driver's license and auto insurance, and attend an orientation and training. If providing transportation, must be 21 years of age and over. We provide mileage reimbursement and volunteers will need to pass a driver's abstract.
