Mission Statement

"Providing essential human services as a safety net, targeting older adults, people with a disability, and low-income families, in order to support independence, dignity, and self-sufficiency."

Description

Johnson County Aging and Human Services needs and welcomes volunteers for programs, such as:

Food Pantries: Help Human Services staff meet the needs of low-income residents in one of three Multi-Service Centers, located in Gardner, Lenexa, and Mission. Volunteers can provide a hand in stocking the food pantry and also provide assistance with office administrative tasks.

Home Delivered Meals (Meals on Wheels): Deliver a nutritious, hot, noon-day meal with a smile to homebound senior adults. You can choose from eight nutrition center locations to find one close to home, work, or school. Deliveries are made from approximately 10:45 am - noon. Volunteers deliver once a week as regular drivers, or when they are able as substitute drivers.

Catch-a-Ride : Through the Catch-A-Ride program, volunteers transport residents in their own vehicles to essential appointments in Johnson County. Volunteers set their own schedules.

Office Administration: Provide behind the scenes support at any Aging and Human Services office. Duties may include data entry, answering telephones, filing, preparing mailings, and other necessary office tasks.

Meals on Wheels is a fun opportunity to show my children how to serve and what volunteering is all about. It is so easy to become a volunteer. It takes just one hour a week and it's kid friendly. Another fun opportunity to Catch-a-Ride, where you can give rides to seniors and others who no longer drive. My children can ride along when we take seniors to the grocery stores or medical appointments. They work with your schedule too. Great people!

It's actually not an office assistance job... A little disappointed but I became a personal shopper which is something different.

I am very interested in volunteering for this company because I enjoy helping and spending time with the elderly. I have a very kind heart and love helping them with anything that they need done. Engaging them in activities and seeing them having fun brings a smile to my face.
