Volunteer Services of Lewis/Thurston/Mason County offers "free" transportation to medical and essential appointments for seniors and people with disabilities. These are individuals who do not qualify for a care giver or other means of transportation and assistance. They depend on the kindness of our volunteers to get them to essential medical care. An hour of your time will make a difference in someone's life!

Volunteers use their own vehicles and are paid a mileage reimbursement, for all miles driven. Volunteers are also covered with an additional Liability insurance policy. Our scheduling is done with a web based program allowing you to volunteer on YOUR time.

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

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.
