A lovely woman is seeking a volunteer to accompany her twice a month to go grocery shopping, run errands and pick up perscriptions. She has a hard time getting items she needs due to not having reliable transportation and it would brighten her life to know she can count on someone on a regular basis.
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.
