Volunteer caregivers make a difference in the life of homebound seniors through friendly visits.

Are you looking for meaningful activities? Are you a people-person? Do you feel called to help those in need? Consider becoming a volunteer caregiver.

We need caring adults to provide non-medical support to homebound individuals. Volunteers are provided with specialized training and ongoing support offering assistance in our 'Neighbors Helping Neighbors' program. Services may include shopping and errands, transportation to appointments, friendly visits, and telephone reassurance.

Volunteer training (2.5 Hrs) is offered each month with daytime and weekend sessions to accommodate your schedule.

**Presently we are providing training virtually and it generally takes 1.5 hours**
