ORGANIZATION: Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

  • 36 people are interested

Do you have a few hours a week to help your elderly neighbor get to a doctor's appointment or pick up essential groceries from the store? Volunteer Chore Service drivers use their own vehicles in their own time and can claim mileage reimbursement. Our clients are low income seniors and disabled adults who live independently in their own homes but who do not have family or resources to provide this help. We match you with someone in your area and you chose to accept the trip when we call. We ask that you carry car insurance, driver's license and have a good driving record. Our office is in Olympia and we cover Lewis, Mason and Thurston Counties.

About Catholic Community Services' Volunteer Services

Location:

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.
