Volunteers are needed to help with light housecleaning in the homes of low-income seniors with disabilities in need in the Chehalis and Centralia areas. Clients are in need of help twice a month or more for an hour or two to help with cleaning that has become too difficult for them, such as sweeping, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning a bathtub or shower, and changing sheets. Volunteer Services works to support low-income seniors and adults with disabilities to continue to live safely and independently in their own homes. Come meet new, wonderful people and make a direct impact in someone's life!

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.
