Time Together Adult Day Program
If you volunteer for the Time Together Adult Day Program, you get to spend 4 and a half hours each week with amazing folks who may be facing difficult challenges associated with aging, developmental disabilities or other cognitive or physical disabilities. The volunteer role is a support role where your focus is on helping participants have an amazing day. You might assist in activities, help folks get from place to place, or just spend some quality time discussing really interesting topics in ways where everyone can engage. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might laugh so much that you cry! We have a lot of fun at Time Together and our volunteers are an inspirational group, who help make this beloved program a success for everyone who attends. If you can imagine yourself as a Time Together volunteer, give Mel Watson a call at 360-321-1623.
