Volunteer Cleaning Oven
Great shot of a volunteer showing off the recently cleaned oven in an elder's apartment!

Help an elder fix their broken fence, step down from the house, secure a ramp, remove graffiti from her fence, help take yard waste bags out or the trash, Wash or put oil in her car if she still drives, sweep her walkway...
We get these types of calls but do not have the on-call support of handy people to help! Join our volunteer Team; it doesn't take much to make someone's day!

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income older adults and adults 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.
