Volunteer Services is in great need of volunteer drivers to help low-income seniors and adults with disabilities get to/from their medical appointments and other essential errands. Our clients have no other resources for transportation, no longer drive, and do not have family or friends available to get them to their appointments. Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles and must have a valid license/registration/insurance, a good driving record, and be at least 21 years old. Volunteer drivers are reimbursed for mileage at $0.44/mile and are covered by Catholic Community Services extended liability/accident/auto insurance. Volunteer as you like, anywhere from once a month to five times a week! You have the option to take what rides you'd like and can stay in-county or accept out-of-county trip requests. Volunteer today and make a difference in someone's life by giving them the gift of transportation access!

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Location:

129 Decatur Street NW, Olympia, WA 98502, US

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.
