Just imagine you can't get to your doctor’s appointments because you have no family, the shuttle isn't in your area, and the bus doesn't run in your area either. What do you do? Many of our clients call Volunteer Services because they are in the situation described. With wonderful volunteers like yourself, Volunteer Services is able to provide older adults with transportation to and from their doctors’ appointments and to get very, much-needed groceries. Would you be willing to share a few hours of your day a couple of times a week? If so read below:

A little background on Volunteer Services:

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. Mileage reimbursement is 44 cents per mile.

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