Would you recommend Jefferson Outreach for Older People?

by John G. (June 8, 2010)
The Jefferson Outreach provides much-needed assistance to the frail elderly so they can stay in their homes as long as possible - maintaining independence and dignity. The Outreach doesn't get big bucks from United Way or government. They rely completely on a handful of volunteers - many of whom are as old or older than those they serve. If you want a place to really make a difference - to personally connect with people who really need your help - call the Jefferson Outreach.
