Mission Statement:

CCS’s mission is that every child should grow up in a safe, loving and nurturing environment; the elderly should be able to live in security and dignity; healthy family life should be affirmed and supported in our communities; in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially the poor and most vulnerable; in joining with others to change the systems which oppress, discriminate or otherwise cause human suffering; and that employees and volunteers should work in an environment which offers respect, teamwork and excellence.

Program History:

Volunteer Chore Services (VCS) began in 1981 in response to cuts in services for elders by the state legislature. The program currently works with thousands of elders and adults with disabilities statewide. VCS is committed to helping elders and adults with disabilities remain independent in their own homes through a network of caring community members. The services are provided at no charge and serve as a safety net for those individuals who cannot afford to pay for assistance and do not qualify for other assistance.

Additional Information:

Volunteers can work one-on-one or in small groups to assist a local low-income senior or disabled adult. Volunteers can choose to assist with light housecleaning or yard care, depending on one's interests. We work to find a great match with someone in your local community and the day/times are flexible to fit your schedule.  All you need is a kind heart, a little patience and a desire to do your best.
