Volunteering helps others and can change your life too!

A growing amount of evidence suggests that there are both physical and emotional benefits for those who choose to volunteer their time and talents. The Mayo Clinic reports that the act of volunteering lowers stress levels and boosts self-confidence


Our mission: Love Living at Home is not a place on a map - it is a gateway to relationships and resources for older adults who desire to live in the homes and neighborhoods they love. We are a volunteer-driven organization. The vast majority of our programs and services are planned and delivered by local volunteers.

LLH provides a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for those in our community who are willing to share their time and expertise. LLH volunteers give as much time as they wish according to a schedule that suits them. Volunteers do not have to be members, and members do not have to volunteer.  Those who choose to volunteer find it highly rewarding. Through the volunteer experience, we are fostering a Caring – Connected – Community.

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

Direct Service Volunteers
Administrative and Office Volunteers
Committee Members
Task Force Members
 Currently we are actively seeking drivers, shoppers and handypersons

Direct Service Volunteers: Drivers - Shoppers - Handyman Help - Chores

With one phone call, LLH members have access to the resources they need to help them stay living in the home they love. Our services are coordinated by the office and delivered by our many volunteers. The capacity of LLH volunteers is unmatched and is the core of our success. When a request is made, we reach out to our volunteers for their availability and skills to meet our members’ needs.


Administrative/Office Volunteers: Help out in the office

Administrative assistance, technical support, mailings, and much more as needs arise.


Committees: Programs & Membership, Communication & Marketing, Development, Finance & Operations

LLH committees are at the heart of all we do and all that we accomplish. These active, hands-on committees are a good way to meet new people with similar interests.


Task Forces: Annual Meeting - Fundraising - Special Needs

If you like to work on a project that has a beginning, middle, and end, an LLH task force may be the perfect opportunity. LLH Task Forces help us to do things that we otherwise would not be able to accomplish. These add hoc teams bring board and committee members together to address important topics to help assure the continued growth of LLH. 


We invite you to join the LLH Volunteer Team. You are sure to find it rewarding.
