A 43-year-old woman living with ALS would love your help with cleaning and meal prep! She would like someone to visit at least once every other week: once a week would be even better. Afternoons work best with her schedule, and she anticipates the needed tasks taking 2-3 hours to complete each time. She does have 2 dogs and 2 cats in her home.

This is a SUMMER opportunity (early May-late August): the family has a student volunteer who helps out during the school year, but they're seeking another person to assist them during the months when she returns home.

This opportunity is also part of the ALS Association's Family Assistance Program:
