 The Senior Chore Program

chorevolunteersConnecting community volunteers to seniors who need help with household chores. 
The Senior Chore program helps seniors to continue living in their homes, thereby enhancing their quality of life, reducing demand for public and private care facilities, and contributing to the strength and vitality of communities. The Program connects seniors with volunteers of all ages who assist them with household maintenance projects, such as seasonal chores, housekeeping, and minor home repairs. If you enjoy working with seniors and want to give back to your community in a meaningful way call Debbie Wells, Senior Chore & Volunteer Coordinator, 651-757-4061 or email her at debbiep@nyfs.org.
