The time commitment for our volunteer opportunities varies greatly, and we are willing to work within your availability. Volunteers can set their own schedule and respond to services on an as-needed basis.
Help fill a few of our biggest needs...
Health Support Volunteers (HSVs)
We are looking for volunteers to help members prepare for and attend medical appointments, take notes, help with prescription pickup, etc. HSVs should be good note-takers, good listeners, organized, patient, and willing to confront/approach authority figures (such as medical health professionals).
We are looking for volunteers willing to drive members around town for appointments, groceries, the bank, or other transportation needs. Transportation Volunteers must provide their own car in good running condition.
We are looking for volunteers willing to make a weekly or biweekly standing commitment, as well as volunteers who would like to fill in for visits as needed. Commit to spending an hour or so visiting with a member in their home or going on a walk through the neighborhood.
Helping Hand Volunteer
We are looking for individuals willing to assist members with simple household tasks, to include services such as laundry, light housekeeping, organizing, and/or basic handyman services. Do as much or as little as you are able to do; this volunteer opportunity has something for everyone!
Telephone Reassurance Volunteers
We are looking for individuals to simply check in with a member on a daily or weekly basis via phone call, text, or email.
We are working diligently to develop an expanding volunteer network through committee participation. Please view the committee descriptions below and contact CVL for more information.
