Below are organizations who have an ongoing need for volunteers. Please contact the organization directly if you wish to share your time and talents.
Mission of Nonprofit: No one should have to face a serious illness alone. The Care Communities surrounds people who are battling serious illness with a dedicated family of volunteers and connects them to social workers who help ensure they have adequate housing, food, and income. Care Teams and one-on-one volunteers work together to help with non-medical daily tasks and offer companionship and emotional support to our neighbors who need it most. thecarecommunities.org
Ongoing Need: The Care Communities provides ongoing support for persons living with HIV/AIDS or Cancer. One of the ways that the client is served is through a “One Day Wonder”. It consists of a few hours (any day and often on Saturday or Sunday) where a group of friends, business associates, corporation employees, neighborhood associations,book club, bible study, etc come together to do a project, such as spring cleaning, yard makeover, garage cleaning. It lasts from 2 – 4 hours and it’s over.
