Logo

Volunteer Chore Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, is committed to helping low- income seniors and adults with disabilities remain living independently through a network of caring community-minded volunteers. The support that this network of volunteers provides helps to build a safety net for seniors and adults with disabilities to maintain their self-sufficiency and improve their health, dignity and well-being.

Description:
Volunteer Chore Services (VCS) specifically targets older adults who live in poverty and lack resources for support. VCS provides chore assistance to low-income seniors and adults living with disabilities to help them remain independent. Volunteer assistance ensures that seniors and adults with disabilities have access to food, chore support to retain their independent living status, social support from a volunteer to decrease isolation and access to health care to ensure their physical and mental well being.

History:
Begun in 1981, Volunteer Chore Services is part of a state wide network administered by Catholic Community Services that works closely with congregations of all faiths, youth groups, service organizations and local businesses to maximize participation and provide support for frail seniors and adults living with disabilities.
