Jewish Family Service of MetroWest

Money Management volunteers assist homebound older adults in the community with bill paying and check writing.

Each volunteer us matched with a homebound older adult in Essex County to visit once a week in their home. Volunteers assist clients with reading mail, filing papers, and paying bills enabling seniors to live independently in their own homes. Volunteers create a budget and track expenses with the client. This program helps ensure that aging residents do not end up in nursing homes or other long term care facilities prematurely.

Volunteers must submit to a background check. The program commitment is 1 hour once a week and the schedule is flexible. Volunteers are expected to report their hours monthly through the JFSMW Volunteer Tracking system and to complete documentation each time they meet with a client and submit this documentation to the program coordinator. Documentation of the visit includes a written budget, a list any checks written out or expenses paid for the client, and a timesheet signed by the client.

This rewarding opportunity takes place in person, in the older adult's home. Masks are required.

For more information contact Taylor Ruszczyk at TRuszczyk@jfsmetrowest.org or 973-637-1742 or visit www.jfsmetrowest.org/volunteer.

The Money Management program is free and administered on a non-discriminatory basis in Essex County. Money Management is generously funded by Essex County.
