ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Services

VS Logo

We are looking for 10-20 volunteers to assist with one-time requests. Every week, an email is sent out filled with requests. (Read below for examples.) Volunteers can sign up for any requests that appeal to them and can schedule with clients for days and times that work for both parties. Though there certainly opportunities near your work, home, or school, the further you are willing to travel, the more individuals you will get to meet!

Example of request below!
  • Yard care
  • Grocery delivery
  • Medication delivery
  • Medical transportation
  • Phone check-in
  • Minor home repairs

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