About

A pleasant client in her early 70s is looking for someone to take her grocery shopping every two weeks. She lives at the heart of Ballard and it's a great way for you to visit Ballard if you don't always get to visit much. Her family all live in Eastern Washington and are unable to come every week to get her groceries. Do you have a couple of hours every other week to assist?

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.
