Come volunteer helping with low-income seniors and adults with disabilities to remain safely and independently in their own homes! Make a difference to those in need in your community, and have fun doing it!

Projects vary. Volunteer Services currently is seeking knowledgeable home repair folks to help with small scale home repairs in the homes of low-income seniors and adults with disabilities. Volunteer Services works to support clients to remain in their homes independently for as long as is safely possible.

Home repairs can include help with ramp construction, railing installment, putting up grab bars, furnace repair, minor plumbing repairs, and other various carpentry related repairs.

There is no time commitment on volunteering, volunteer when you can for the projects you feel comfortable helping with. Helping upkeep the quality and safety of someone in need's home truly makes a great difference in their life!

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

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.
