Two hours a month can make a difference in a senior's life

Did you know that our average service takes about two hours? Volunteering for just one service a month will make a difference in the lives of our more experienced neighbors.

Village Connections volunteers are priceless! They are the glue that holds Village Connections together and a crucial resource for helping our older neighbors stay connected, active, and independent.

If you are a new retiree looking for a rewarding opportunity, or a college student or neighbor with just a little bit of extra time to give, or maybe you have a particular expertise you wish to share ... then consider joining our volunteer ranks.  After exploring the possibilities, we will most certainly find an opportunity that suits you:
