Older and Challenged Adult Program Volunteer

Our Older and Challenged Adult program supports older adults as well as adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities, chronic mental illness, and other cognitive challenges—helping them make appropriate decisions and manage personal affairs.

Through case management, protective care and sometimes guardianship, Families First provides safety to those who need it most.

Volunteers for this program work to provide support and companionship to an older and/or disabled adult. Specific tasks will be determined between the volunteer and his/her direct supervisor. This position is flexible and the need is ongoing, with shifts expected to be weekly or bi-weekly. Visitations will take place at the client’s place of residence which could be senior living community or facility.
