Description

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. Volunteers generally provide 2-8 hours per month assisting their neighbors depending on their schedules and availability. Services provided include: Housework, Laundry, Shopping/errands, Transportation, Yard Work, Respite, Minor Home Repair, Cooking, Communications, Household Repairs, Monitoring, Wood Provision, Some kinds of Personal Care, Protective Supervision, Moving Assistance
