Family Services’ Project HEARTH (Helping Elderly Adults Remain in Their Homes) is in need of dedicated volunteers to work with seniors living in the greater Norristown, greater Pottstown, and North Penn areas. Created in 1994, Family Services’ Project HEARTH links elderly adults who are healthy enough to live in their own homes with special support services that help them to remain independent.
Volunteers must enjoy working with seniors and will offer compassion and companionship. Volunteer drivers must have a valid driver’s license and insurance.
Friendly visitors provide support and companionship to homebound seniors. Volunteers can share experiences, play games, listen to some interesting stories, share a laugh, read, socialize and enjoy each other’s company. Our volunteers can choose to spend time with seniors based on their schedule and availability.
