Volunteer Services

Daisy Flower

Seasonal help needed from 1 person or a small group or family to help an 88 year old senior in Federal Way. She has owned her home for 40 years and can no longer take care of her established rhodies, shrubs, and plants. No pruning skills needed - she needs a clear and safe path clipped back so she can get to her driveway and her mail box. Her yard is beautiful and you can see it was once managed quite well but has been overgrown. Last month she wondered if she should pay someone to prune or if she could should buy groceries.

Background on Volunteer Services:

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income elders and persons living with disabilities. Volunteers can provide assistance with light housecleaning, transportation, grocery shopping, home repair, and yard care. With a little help from volunteers, clients can continue to live independently in their homes.

Due to the vulnerable population we serve, volunteers must complete an application form, pass a Washington State Patrol check and attend an orientation.
