An older gentleman in Redmond who speaks Farsi would like to have a volunteer who can speak Farsi. During the pandemic, many older adults faced social isolation and loneliness. Would you be willing to provide socialization over the phone or in-person with social distancing?

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.

Please note: Following the guidelines of King County Public Health during COVID-19, volunteer opportunities may be subject to change.
