About us

At Catholic Charities, our vision is to improve the lives of those we serve, to empower the most vulnerable, and to help reduce poverty through quality, compassionate, and effective human services.

Adult Day Services provides adults with special needs a healthy daytime environment and the opportunity to go home to family each evening. Our program enables otherwise isolated individuals to find new joy and companionship, while their families can rest knowing their loved one is cared for, safe and engaged in stimulating activities.

Our Members -many who have suffered from a stroke, arthritis, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, as well as developmental disabilities- benefit from trained and experienced staff, socialization and physical activities, and bathing services.

We could not do what we do without the help of our volunteers!

As a volunteer at Catholic Charities’ Adult Day Center, no two days will be the same. In our welcoming, home-like environment, volunteers will have the opportunity to build strong relationships with our members through long conversations or actively participating in puzzles, balloon volleyball, or their favorite game, Farkle (Don’t worry! We will teach you how to play!).

We welcome you share your talents and skills with our members, staff, and other volunteers as well. In the past, volunteers have shared their musical talents (singing or an instrument) and have brought knowledge from their studies or professions (art therapy, occupational therapy, certified nursing etc.).

"I am glad that the staff utilizes me. Aside from letting me lead a couple of group exercise sessions, they let me do one on one exercise for those who need more assistance."

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my skills."

Come join the fun as we support this wonderful population of elders!
