Volunteerism and community support are at the heart of our agency. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of seniors you can help in many ways.

Volunteers are used extensively in our programs, with 80+ volunteers giving more than 10,000 hours annually. This enables us to provide a great deal of service across a wide geographic area containing almost 226,000 seniors while retaining a relatively small staff.

Senior Advocacy Services volunteers are needed in a variety of capacities.
