Did you know that there are low income seniors and persons with disabilities right in your own community that need your help to remain independent? If you could volunteer a few hours of time each month, you could enable them to remain independent and in their own homes.
For over 30 years AARP Foundation has worked with local community agencies to deliver AARP Foundations' Money Management Program in communities nationwide. This essential service uses trained volunteers to help low-income older adults and people with disabilities manage their daily finances and remain in their communities. Some of these vulnerable individuals may have had their electricity turned off or are facing eviction, even though enough money was in their bank account to make the necessary payments. Sadly, most have no family, relatives or friends to help them manage their finances.
Currently, the Money Management Program agency in your community, Shenandoah Valley Social Services, is looking for open-minded, compassionate, and patient volunteers with good budgeting, organizational, and support skills to help manage the finances of older or disabled low-income individuals who want assistance.
The Money Management Program has the following volunteer positions available now:
