SeaTac: Calling Volunteers to Help Seniors with Housework

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Services

Cleaning Supplies

It can be challenging for seniors and adults with disabilities to clean their homes on a regular basis, for many of our clients, house chores can be exhausting and take a lot of their time and energy. There are a lot of chores that some of our clients are not able to do such as vacuuming, mopping the floor, dusting high places, and cleaning the bathrooms. This is a great opportunity for a volunteer to help out with these chores which could improve our clients' quality of life and help them stay independent in their own homes for longer.

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.
