Do you, a friend, or family member have a compassionate heart and the desire to donate some of your time to help a senior?


If you would like to see our SOS volunteers in action, watch our video!        Click here or watch below!



Other than a big heart, patience, and an interest in making a difference in someone’s life, all you need is to:


  • Make a commitment to visit for at least two hours every week regularly for one year
  • Have own transportation, current driver’s license and vehicle insurance
  • Receive pre-service and in-service training

A background check is required prior to enrollment as you will enter the homes of your clients.  There is no charge for this.


If you are interested in joining this group of volunteers impacting our community, please call:
