BECOME A "V":
Volunteers, our "Vs", are an integral part of our Respite care Team. Many have been with the program for years, assisting our community members as they manage the challenges that come with aging.
You too can become a lifeline of support for your neighbors and friends that need help coping with thses challenges. Take advantage of this opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of our participants and families.
Volunteers can come at a scheduled time each week or be on call as needed. This is a very rewarding volunteer opportunity, you get back much more than you give.
"We are dedicated to providing supportive care to Families coping with the challenges of aging."
Please give us a call, we need more volunteers to meet the continual increase in demand for services. Call Nancy Herk, Executive Director, at 207.729.8571.
