During the COVID -19 pandemic, it is essential to help older adults with groceries, prescriptions, outdoor chores, and other critical needs. It is also important to call our members to ensure that they are okay and that they have a friendly voice to connect with, combatting loneliness and isolation.
If you can spare a few hours per week or every other week to run errands or make phone calls, please start by filling out an application form.
Community Volunteers are the Life-Blood of A Little Help in core annual trainings and orientations held regularly. Our services are only as good as our volunteers, so we invest in the highest quality professional development for them. As a result of our investment and the positive relationships they build with their senior neighbors our volunteer retention rate is over 80%, with an average tenure of three years.
Volunteers are also considered members in our organization, as such,we are blurring the lines between those serving and served. Volunteers benefit from their involvement in an intergenerational community and the opportunity to give back to strengthen their own neighborhoods. We also strive to provide opportunities for teens and younger volunteers to be involved in these grassroots efforts. As a nonprofit organization, we can provide students with school community service hours, and we are happy to complete the necessary paperwork to show their participation.
