If you are dreaming of getting outside to volunteer, now is a great time to volunteer with Senior Community Services HOME Program!

You choose the date and time and we will match you with a senior(s) in your surrounding area who need an hand with spring clean up. We welcome large groups who are able to split into teams. It’s a great way to volunteer to help someone in our community and get outside at the same time!
