Caring volunteers freely give of their time and personal resources to ensure that our homebound elderly and disabled clients receive a nutritious meal. These compassionate individuals do more than just provide a meal and a friendly home visit. They are trained to contact our office if a client does not answer the door. This daily safety check gives many of our clients and their families an added peace of mind.
In addition to delivering meals, there are lots of ways to give back to the community by helping our homebound elderly and disabled clients remain living independently in their own home.
Your help is needed to deliver meals to people in need in your neighborhood. Volunteers typically deliver meals only one day per week, Monday-Friday. Individual and group opportunities are available. Learn more about meal delivery
Home Visits to Combat Isolation and Loneliness
You can enhance someone’s life by simply being a friend to an elderly or disabled person who may have no visitors. Through our Friend to Friend program, you can develop a friendship with a homebound client who may have no other visitors. Best of all, you can do this on your own timeline.
