Opportunities

VASIA Volunteers
VASIA (Volunteer Advocate for Seniors or Incapacitated Adults) volunteers are community members trained and overseen by the Guardianship Program Manager. Once trained, VASIA volunteers are appointed by a local judge to advocate for incapacitated adults unable to manage their own financial assets or personal affairs.
Caring Companions
Choose from a variety of services to provide to isolated individuals with whom you are thoughtfully matched. Activities may include grocery shopping, dog walking, meal prep, and always friendly visiting! Phone call visitation is an option. A great opportunity to build a meaningful relationship.
The Endwright Center
This active older adult center needs volunteer teachers for classes such as exercise, nutrition, art, crafts, or computers. Volunteers also help run the center as greeters, receptionists, or event assistance. Other options are to help plan and run the annual Senior Games or participate in the Garden Club each Spring, Summer, and Fall.
State Health Insurance Program Counselor
State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) trains volunteers to provide objective information to people about their Medicare options during one-on-one appointments. SHIP volunteers become certified through an initial 30 hours of training, with updates every 6 months.
More Than A Meal (Home Delivered Meals)
Drivers ensure homebound seniors receive nutritious lunches 3-5 days a week. A driver’s route takes 1-2 hours and is done once per week. Substitute drivers and help at meal sites is also needed.
Mobile Food Pantry
Area 10 has the area’s only home delivered food pantry. Volunteers set up, pack, and deliver groceries to recipients who are elderly or disabled. In the summer, volunteers are also needed in the garden which supplies fresh produce to these clients.
Money Management Program
Volunteers offer one-on-one counseling and assistance to help people remain independent and avoid incurring unnecessary debt.
