Media and Interested Parties
Did you know that seniors and persons with disabilities in your own community need your help to remain independent? With just a few hours a month, you can make a big difference in someone's life.
There are a number of programs for you to help:
- Money Management volunteers coach seniors and people with disabilities with budgeting, balancing checkbooks and/or bill paying.
- Transportation Reaching People volunteers take seniors and people with disabilities to critical appointments.
- Family Caregiver Support Program volunteers work in pairs to deliver evidence-based workshops in local communities. Free training, certification and mileage reimbursement provided.
- RSVP - Retired Senior Volunteer Program volunteers help at local food pantries to provide hunger relief.
Your time, talent and skills are in demand! The county's Volunteer Connection program invites you to upcoming Volunteer Coffee Chats, where you can connect with neighbors and learn about services and opportunities.
