You can bring God’s love and light to a local senior!

Are you looking for a simple, yet meaningful way to live out your faith? Your compassionate heart for others is needed to come alongside isolated seniors and weary caregivers who live around us with loving, non-medical help. Often just 1 hour a week is all that’s needed to make a difference in someone’s life and it could make a difference in your life, too!

Some current volunteer opportunities:

  • Transportation for elderly who are unable to drive
  • Light House Cleaning/Organizing for aging and frail community members
  • Visiting and Companionship for isolated seniors
  • Sitting with a caregiver’s loved one so the caregiver can take a needed break
  • Simple in-home repairs or yard work assistance

Come and be amazed at the blessings that come from being there for someone in Tippecanoe County during a season of need. Great opportunity for your family, too! Contact our office at (765) 423-1879 or caregiver95@gmail.com before April 12th to attend our monthly training class.
