Please visit the new page to apply.
That unkempt yard down the street belongs to an elder who needs you! Don’t just wonder why no one helps! Be that person who brings the yard back to beauty and life while gaining peace for yourself by being outside. Choose your own schedule and make a new friend who will appreciate you and your energy. No chainsaws, no tree climbing, just old-fashioned weed pulling, trimming, and mowing. VS works to change our communities for the better, one yard and one life at a time.
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.
