About

Help an older adult with limited means remain in the comfort of his/her home or apartment by helping them with minor at-home assistance.

When you donate a few hours of your time each month, you help maintain an older adult's independence and life satisfaction. Areas of help often include but not limited to: vacuuming, dusting, floor mopping, or organizing items. Outdoor seasonal help is also needed such as lawn mowing, raking, and snow shoveling. Matches are made based on the need of the older adult, and the interests and time constraints of the volunteers.

This is a great opportunity to develop a lasting social connection while making a positive impact in our community.
