Interested in a flexible volunteer program that allows you to help seniors remain independent in their homes? Many senior adults are able to keep all of their rooms clean and in-order, but could use some help maintaining the area around their house. In the summer the grass grows too fast. In the the fall the leaves never seem to stop coming down. And winter brings snow and ice that create dangerous living conditions for many seniors.

Help one of these seniors stay happy in their home by volunteering a few hours a month to help with seasonal tasks. This is a flexible program, able to fit any schedule. While we can provide the mowers, rakes, and shovels, we need the strong backs of volunteers to put them to use.
