The CARE Program – Volunteers are needed!
The CARE Program is in need of volunteers to assist with helping older adults in the area stay safe and independent in their homes. This program would not be successful without the wonderful volunteers who are so generous with their time and talents. We work hard to match your interests with the volunteer opportunities that we have available; check out our application to see where you might fit! Volunteering with the CARE Program is a great way to get involved and give back and we have a variety of opportunities throughout the year for volunteers of all ages and interest levels. Interested? Have questions? Call (216)291-3902 and ask for CARE Volunteer opportunities or email us your interest at CARE4eight@gmail.com.
