Currentt volunteers are required to be vaccinated from COVID-19 before engaging in this program.


A prevailing sense of loneliness is among the most common issues faced by Adults 60+ today With 42.6 million older adults reporting a feeling of social disconnect - a fact compounded by the decline of traditional community centers such as churches.

Our Home Chore Program looks to alleviate that loneliness while helping with practical tasks.

As a volunteer, you will be paired/matched with a senior near you. You will be responsible for visiting that senior once to twice a month, making sure they are doing ok, listening to their stories and helping with chores that have become difficult for them.

We have matches that have been together for OVER TEN YEARS. This is a great way to fulfill your new year's resolution of helping others but also creating a relationship that brings real meaning to both parties.
