Community Partners in Caring is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in Santa Barbara County created to support seniors 62 and older and individuals with mild disabilities. Its mission is to provide volunteer support services that allow our seniors and individuals with disabilities to live independently while maintaining dignity, respect, and quality of life.
Community Partners in Caring is looking for volunteers! Volunteers are matched with seniors and individuals who need non-medical support services but cannot afford to pay for these services. Volunteers provide rides to medical appointments, groceries, friendly visits, reassurance calls, assistance with shopping, and warm referrals to other needed resources. Volunteers are the eyes and ears of the agency. They watch for declining health and self-care and identify other needs so that Community Partners in Caring can intervene and make appropriate referrals.
Because volunteers provide all services and the agency is funded through gifts, government, and philanthropic grants, services are always free.
Why volunteer? Volunteers enjoy a flexible schedule, involve themselves in meaningful and rewarding activities, and can volunteer as often or as little as they like. Mileage reimbursement and liability protection are provided. Community Partners in Caring coordinates all services which prevent volunteers from being over asked. There are also various volunteer social activities, such as the monthly volunteer roundtable, the annual volunteer picnic, and end of year party.
It’s a great opportunity to meet new people while doing something that allows older seniors to stay connected to their community.
