Senior Corps connects older adults (ages 55+) with people and organizations that need them the most. PASSAGES administers Senior Corps program within our service area to help older adults become mentors, coaches, companions, or community volunteers through the Senior Companion, and Foster Grandparent programs.
These programs are ideal for older, active adults who are willing to serve at-risk children, adults with disabilities, and caregivers who are living within their community. Foster Grandparents and Senior Companions dedicate 5 to 40 hours of service every week in order to ease the burdens of people who need help.
Foster Grandparent Program
If you, or someone you know, is over 55 years of age, loves children and is looking for a way to stay active, consider becoming a Foster Grandparent.
Foster Grandparent Volunteers serve anywhere from 5 to 40 hours a week and if eligible, can earn a tax-free stipend. To learn more contact, the PASSAGES Volunteer Services Director at 530.898.4307.
Senior Companion Program
The Senior Companion Program offers adults ages 55 and over an opportunity to Give the Gift of Friendship by becoming companions to older adults wanting to remain independent and living in our community. Senior Companions can provide anywhere from 5 to 40 hours of service weekly visiting in the home, driving to Doctor appointments, going on walks, or to the grocery store. In return for their services, Senior Companions, if eligible, receive a tax-free stipend, mileage reimbursement and assistance with transportation.
