There are numerous project sites throughout Mason, Lewis, and Thurston counties that are requesting volutneers to help with yard work. Volunteer Services clients are low-income seniors and adults with disabilities living independently in their own homes. Many folks do not have their own yard supplies and are physically unable to maintain their own yards. This can cause an extreme fall risk for someone who has mobility issues. Have fun getting out in your community, getting your hands dirty, and helping out those in need! Groups are highly encouraged to volunteer for larger scale yard work jobs.

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Location:

129 Decatur Street NW, Olympia, WA 98502, US

Mission Statement

We believe every child should grow up in a safe, loving and nurturing environment We believe the elderly should be able to live with security and dignity. We believe healthy family life should be affirmed and supported in our communities We believe in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially the poor and most vulnerable. We believe in joining with others to change systems that oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering. We believe employees and volunteers should work in an environment that fosters respect, teamwork and excellence. We believe in all of these things for all people, whatever their color, whatever language they speak or however they worship.

Description

Our program exists as a safety net for low-income elders and people with disabilities (also low-income)by providing them with services that allow them to remain living as independently as possible in their own homes (not assisted living). For example, a 89 year old woman who only collects $600/mo. in Social Security needs help with her lawn. She can't afford to pay someone, and if her lawn goes a couple of months without being mowed, now the lawn is a fire hazard.
