Volunteer Opportunities
"All you need is a wealth of spirit to help with Faith in Action” 

                  (Su, pioneer board member)

 Who can help?

Anyone who cares about
the quality of life in our community
and who desires to improve it.

Anyone who is motivated to help the homebound maintain dignity.

Anyone who wishes to respond
to a call to serve others
 

Why do we help?

Because we desire to help people maintain their sense of independence
and remain in their own homes for
as long as possible.

Because our faith traditions and/or personal values motivate us
to come to the aid of others.

Because we care;
we can’t look the other way.

Because we desire to make 
our community a better place to live.

"It feels good to know that you matter to somebody, and I know that I matter to my care receivers."
                    (Jerr

"When these volunteers come to help me, it opens another door.  They remind me that I'm still cared about."
         
(Dorothy, 86 year old care receiver)
