This essential program recruits and coordinates community volunteers to provide direct services for elderly and disabled adults. Among the services we provide are housekeeping, shopping, meal preparation, yard work, transportation, moving assistance, minor home repair, and more as we strive to help our clients remain living independently in their own homes.

 

Who is Eligible

To qualify for this program you must be a Senior (over 60) or a disabled adult unable to carry out  the requested tasks yourself, without anyone else to turn to such as family, friends, neighbors or church members, and without the income to pay a professional provider.
 
If you need assistance please don't hesitate to call, we are eager and willing to help. You are not a burden, and there are times in all our lives when we must seek help. You deserve to have your needs taken care of and to live in a safe, healthy home.  And although our services may at times be limited by such  factors as volunteer availability and funding, we promise to do our best.

Volunteers

Volunteers are the heart and soul of this program. A sense of loneliness and isolation is common among the elderly in our community, especially among those who don’t have a support system of family and friends. We work to address such issues by reaching out to those in need, providing not only help with tangible needs such as transportation or home repair, but also a friendly face and some reassuring human contact. That is why we rely on the necessary work of the dedication of our wonderful volunteers, people like you who care and want to help.
 
Many find that volunteering brings them joy, inspiration, compassion, and a greater sence of self-worth. As well as personal growth, volunteers seeking future employment and may receive the benefits of work experience, employment references, and community networking. Other benefits of working with the our Senior & Disabled Services Program are a flexible schedule, mileage reimbursement, and working with our friendly, dedicated staff.
 

"Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
