Volunteer Services

Daisy Flower

Get your group together and help your neighbors! There are so many elderly in our communities and neighborhoods who need just a little help to maintain their property they way they could when they were young. Volunteer Services is a group of caring, devoted folks who see a need in the isolated neighbors in our community, and want to help. We are working on the goal of keeping low-income elders and persons living with disabilities in their homes and safely independent as long as possible. These folks cannot afford the fines their HOAs impose for an untidy yard. Bring your group over and transform a senior's yard in a few fun hours! As we serve a vulnerable population, volunteer applications include background check, valid driver's license and insurance, and we provide orientation and training. Join those making a positive difference in your corner of the community. We have lots of requests currently in Auburn, Kent, and Maple Valley!

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.
