Volunteer Services

VS Logo

While many of us are practicing social distancing, there are many low-income seniors and adults with disabilities who need essential medical transportation to their cancer treatments and dialysis. If you can help even once a week, it would make a huge impact in getting our clients to their life-sustaining treatments. This qualifies as an essential service that volunteers can provide.

A little background on Volunteer Services:

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income older adults 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.
