Want to help? Volunteers are needed all throughout Allegheny County. There's an elderly neighbor in need right in your community, maybe even in your neighborhood!

  • Providing transportation to medical appointments, pharmacy and other necessary errands
  • Shopping for groceries with or for a senior
  • Making friendly home visits and telephone reassurance calls
  • Performing Safety for Seniors home assessments
  • Assisting with correspondence, paying bills and filling out applications
  • Completing yard projects, shoveling snow, raking leaves, planting and gardening
  • Driving the Free Rides for Seniors shuttle bus
