Caring volunteers helping older residents remain independent in their own homes.
How does Chore Corps work?
- The coordinator will discuss you specific needs, including your cost of materials, which you must provide.
- We will try to line up screened volunteers from your locale, with the skills you need. If we can make a match, time will be arranged for the work to be evaluated, if necessary, and completed.
- The Chore Corps coordinator will follow up with you to determine your satisfaction with the volunteer's labor.
- For larger jobs beyond the scope of volunteers, or those requiring a licensed professional, you may need to screen, hire and pay a private contractor.
- While the Chore Corps volunteers are not paid, donations help support and strengthen the efforts to ensure the availability of a helping hand for you or someone else in the future.
- Call Chore Corps toll free at 1-877-711-7787
Examples of services Chore Corps might provide include:
Shopping, general home maintenance, simple installations, small carpentry jobs, yard work, odd jobs, painting and emergency winter chores.
- Chore Corps is not possible without the dedication of many volunteers.
- This special breed of laborers, students, retirees, crafts-persons, and neighbors which makes up Chore Corps is bound together through experience of service to others. Chore Corps volunteers understand that they offer the older adults within their communities a chance to remain in their own homes for many years in safety and comfort.
- Since the tasks are many and varied, the need is for a large number of volunteers to be available on an on-call basis when the calls for asssistance come in. We screen all Chore Corps volunteers. Mileage assistance, ongoing training, support and recognition are provided.
- Consider offering your service or the services of you organizaiton to the community through Chore Corps. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the coordinator of volunteers today, toll free: 1-877-711-7787 to get started.
