Jewish Family Services, SpiriTrust Lutheran, and RSVP of the Capital Region have been awarded an Embracing Age Grant through the York County Community Foundation’s Hahn Home Fund. The three agencies will partner to engage older adults in volunteering by streamlining the opportunities, entry and training.
The creation of a central volunteer recruitment entry point will create easy access for all older adults interested in volunteering in the York, Pennsylvania area. There will be collaborative education and orientation of volunteers to ensure comprehensive training. Of utmost importance, is that volunteer experiences will be enhanced and adapted to meet the changing needs of older adults.
For information on volunteer opportunities with JFS please call 717-843-5011.
