“Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience and just plain loving one another.” – Erma Bombeck
Staffed by an Executive Director and Volunteer Coordinator, the HomePorts team is supported by a cadre of local volunteers who are a critically important resource to our members. Volunteers provide assistance in many ways such as transportation assistance, home visits, helping with small home projects and repairs around the house, and managing errands for members.
As a HomePorts volunteer you have an opportunity to make a difference by helping our 55 plus community to live their best lives.
Benefits of volunteering:
- allows you to meet new people
- provides a sense of purpose

- improves self-esteem and increases socializing
- help members become less dependent on friends and family
