Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Washtenaw County families struggle to provide financially and emotionally for their homebound loved ones. Volunteers in this program love the meaningful connections they are able to create with the families they serve, and knowing they are able to provide family members a break from taking care of their loved one.
The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program is seeking volunteers to join our Volunteer Caregiver Respite program. Volunteers provide one-on-one companionship a couple hours a week. Visits last about 2 hours and provide much needed companionship to socially isolated seniors, and offer relief to their primary caretakers. Volunteers do not provide any direct care (bathing, toileting, etc.)
Opportunities available in your area: Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester, Milan, Saline & Ypsilanti.
