About

HGSCA is seeking a non-profit lawyer who can advise our organization what types of legal forms and documentation we need to maintain our non-profit status, and aid the education of directors, personnel, and other stakeholders so we can run our organization diligently.

We look forward to working with retirees who would like to find the perfect opportunity to pursue their interests and feed their passions. We know that retirees reap a host of physical, mental and emotional health benefits from volunteering while they find a way to contribute positively to society.

Here are three positive effects they get from giving back

  • We know that older adults who volunteer tend to live longer. We would like them to feel
  • Volunteering exercises the brain. Because it engages them in solving problems, volunteering may also improve the cognitive health of retirees
  • Volunteers are more socially active and less lonely
