Volunteer Opportunities

Driver Escort Program:

Volunteer Driver. Use your own vehicle to transport an elderly or disabled person to medical appointments, to help someone with low vision attend a support group, and so much more. Mileage reimbursement provided. You assist on your schedule. For more information contact the Transportation Coordinator at 647-4616.

Guardian:

When an adult does not have the mental capacity to make their own decisions, the Adult Protective Services Social Worker will petition the court to appoint a guardian. We are seeking individuals who are trustworthy, caring, helpful and compassionate. A guardian has no financial responsibility or obligation to provide direct care to the individual. A guardian's role is to be an advocate regarding health and financial matters, making decisions in the person best interest and assisting the person in navigating through tough decisions. The Adult Protective Services Social Worker will provide support and training on the role and duties of a guardian. For more information contact the Adult Protective Services Social Worker at 647-4616.
