An African American Elder is needing help with cleaning, laundry, and someone to pick up and deliver groceries. She is appreciative of any help and would enjoy the company.

Background on Volunteer Services:

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income elders and persons 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.
