In operation since 1985, our mission continues to be the enhancement of independence of older adults. This is accomplished by providing volunteer-based services, which include: transportation to medical appointments and other health related services, grocery shopping and to the bank as essential needs. Additionally, volunteers take the elderly clients to destinations adding to quality of life such as the beauty shop, senior center or to a friend's house for a visit. Social contact is important to combat loneliness for the older adult clients, so volunteers serve as friendly visitors in the home or by making reassuring phone calls. Volunteers also do minor home repair and maintenance to provide a safe home environment.
