Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Volunteer to drive low-income seniors and adults with disabilities to their medical appointments and other essential errands. Volunteer Services, a program with Catholic Community Services, works to meet the transportation needs of low-income seniors and adults with disabilities who do not have any other safe means of transportation.

Volunteers are covered by the VS/CCS extended liability/accident/auto insurance and are reimbursed for mileage.

Volunteers use their own vehicles, so you must have a current license and auto insurance, as well as pass a driver's abstract.

We have an online website you can sign into and check for rides that work for you! Volunteer as you like and are able to!

The ability to access medical care and food cannot be understated. Make a difference in someone's life today!

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Location:

129 Decatur Street NW, Olympia, WA 98502, US

Mission Statement

We believe every child should grow up in a safe, loving and nurturing environment We believe the elderly should be able to live with security and dignity. We believe healthy family life should be affirmed and supported in our communities We believe in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially the poor and most vulnerable. We believe in joining with others to change systems that oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering. We believe employees and volunteers should work in an environment that fosters respect, teamwork and excellence. We believe in all of these things for all people, whatever their color, whatever language they speak or however they worship.

Description

Our program exists as a safety net for low-income elders and people with disabilities (also low-income)by providing them with services that allow them to remain living as independently as possible in their own homes (not assisted living). For example, a 89 year old woman who only collects $600/mo. in Social Security needs help with her lawn. She can't afford to pay someone, and if her lawn goes a couple of months without being mowed, now the lawn is a fire hazard.
