Do you have time each week to have a phone conversation with an older adult? Phone Buddies provide older adults who might be feeling isolated and in need of social connection with support through a weekly phone call. Many of these individuals no longer have the friendships they once had and would greatly benefit from regular communication with another caring individual.Read More
Helping another person brings a wonderful feeling of joy and satisfaction. At Catholic Community Services, volunteers help elderly and disabled persons remain living independently in their own homes. They also serve food to the hungry, tutor youth struggling in school, assist the staff of CCS day care and early learning centers, and do much, much more!
CCS volunteers come from all segments of the population. Many are fully employed; others are homemakers, young people and retired persons. All bring a gift of caring and time. “Being a volunteer is truly one of the greatest gifts of my life,” says Al Jackson, of Volunteer Services.
CCS offers a variety of opportunities to help others, arranged to accommodate volunteers’ schedules. Call today!
