How many volunteers does it take to change a light bulb? One. Imagine if you were sitting in a wheel chair and your overhead kitchen light went out. Who are you going to call? Volunteer Chore Services receives frequent requests for help with everything and the kitchen sink from Pierce County's low-income elders and disabled adults. Can you paint a wall? Clean a gutter? Fix a clogged sink? Replace a faucet? Build a ramp? Repair appliances? Wash windows? Make a difference in someone's life...it only takes a few hours a month!

Mission Statement

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