The Home Chore Program was developed in 1986 to help low-income adults, 60 years and older, with basic home chores to help them remain independent and living in their own homes. Community volunteers, which can be individuals, businesses, families, youth, or groups, are matched with eligible seniors to provide assistance with light housekeeping, outdoor chores, or simply provide company on a one-time or occasional basis. Matches are made based on the needs of the senior adult and the interests and time constraints of the volunteers.
Examples of Home Chore Program Projects:
- Friendly visitation
- Pet walking
- Snow removal
To Get Started:
To be matched with an older adult for the Home Chore Program, please follow the instructions on our Volunteer page.
If you are an older adult that are interested in receiving services through our Home Chore Program, please call and ask for our Intake Case Manager at (608) 243-5252 for an assessment.
If you have questions about the Home Chore Program or would like further information, please e-mail the Special Events & Volunteer Coordinator, Larry Jolón, or call him at (608) 243-5252 x 204.
