Thank you for your interest in making a difference through Wright County Community Action. We are dedicated to offering volunteering opportunities that feel right for you. Apply for one of the positions below if you feel your skills would help us meet the needs of our community.
WCCA is providing One-on-One consulting with caregivers in Wright County who are caring for someone with chronic health issues, dementia, or disabilities. Caregiver Consultation involves meeting with a caregiver for multiple sessions with the goal of reducing stress, identifying and solving problems, and reframing difficult situations by working with caregivers to develop coping, problem-solving, and self-care skills. As a volunteer for this program, you will help spread the word, provide outreach, and connect WCCA caregiver consultants to potential clients. Work with local churches or other groups to share our message, inform individuals about Caregiver Consultation, and inform the public about the program. This position requires 6-10 hours each month and is ongoing through 2022. Training will be provided.
Being a volunteer driver, allows you to volunteer when you are available. Using your own vehicle, transport older adults without transportation to important destinations and be reimbursed $.575/mile for each mile you drive. Your assistance helps older adults without transportation get to medical appointments, shop for groceries, keep personal care appointments, and remain independent in their homes. Reduce isolation and promote independence for our Wright County elders by joining the Aging Alliance Drive Team today!
