Volunteer Services Program

Transportation and Additional Services

Our Volunteer Services program team is committed to providing seniors (ages 60 years and older)  and adults with disabilities (ages 18 to 59) the ability to remain independent in their own homes. This support is accomplished through a network of volunteers who deliver important services.


The key services provided are:

  1. Transportation Services. We offer transportation to medical appointments in addition to grocery store and pharmacy trips. Our service can go as far as Bellingham to the north and Seattle to the south.
  2. Other Services. The Volunteer Services team also provides assistance for light housekeeping, errands, and yard work.

All services are based on the availability of volunteers.  The services provided in this program are partially funded by government funding and through donations.  To learn more about donating, contact the Director Pat Weekley.

Join Our Team of Volunteers

The Volunteer Services program needs more team members, we encourage you to contact us about volunteering. More and more seniors are turning to us for help; unfortunately, we do not have enough volunteers to meet their needs. 

 If you like to drive, and own a car, and enjoy meeting new people then this is the volunteer program for you!  Through volunteering, you will establish new friends, learn more about the the beautiful island and enjoy giving back.
