Provides part-time volunteer opportunities for low income persons age 55 and older through its Senior Companion Program. The program provides participants the opportunity to enrich their lives through providing services to other seniors less able than themselves. This program strives to prevent or reduce the need for institutional care, there by helping the elderly to continue living at home.
The Senior Companion volunteers make the lives to those they serve less lonely through their friendship, education, provision of community resources, and regular friendly visits. Thanks to the efforts of Senior Companions, many older adults are able to avoid institutionalization and can lead more happy fulfilling lives in their own homes.
The benefits of volunteering include an hourly stipend, transportation allowance, training, casework services information and referral. Participation in volunteer program does not affect any of your social security benefits, food stamps or government housing. To enroll, complete the online application today.
