Home Chore Program

The Volunteer 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, 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 both on the need of the senior adult and the interests and time constraints of the volunteers.

Examples of Home Chore Program Projects:

  • Vacuuming
  • Dusting
  • Laundry
  • Sweeping/mopping
  • Friendly visitation
  • Mowing
  • Raking
  • Snow Removal
  • And so much more

To Get Started:
