Pet Visits needed in Martinez, Pinole, and San Pablo bring joy to Hospital Residents
Volunteer Opportunity Details:
LITA "Love Is The Answer" of Contra Costa was founded as non-profit organization in 1980 and has operated since then as a public charity, serving senior and disabled individuals living full time in over 40 Contra Costa County hospitals and nursing homes. An annual average of over 100 LITA volunteers visit isolated and lonely seniors living in hospitals regularly bringing social enjoyment of various kinds. Pet visitors call on both individuals and small groups gathered in wheel chairs in a social area. Pet visitor volunteers visit assisted living retirement homes as well as some skilled nursing facilities.
Volunteer Application: Complete the simple one page info and application form which you may email to LITA Director Victoria Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mail to LITA of CC, PO Box 121, Port Costa, CA 94569 Request an email app from Victoria Ryan or Call 925 212-4573 to ask for an application to be emailed or mailed to your home or business address. LITA Director will provide support and help set up the orientation visit at any hospital, nursing home or assisted living residence in Contra Costa County. Some Alameda County placements are done but it is out of our stated service area and a stretch of our resources as LITA does its best to respond to needs in Contra Costa County.
