Caregivers of St. Francis of Assisi Community began with a need to train volunteers to help our frail or older members in tasks that they can no longer do or who may be temporarily disabled. This non-medical assistance to the physcially challenged or elderly members of the parish helps them maintain their independence, decrease their isolation, and increase their quality of life.
Volunteers are trained to assist in transportation to doctors, grocery shopping and other emergencies as they occur. The training is now available online by clicking here. If you mention that you are a St. Francis of Assisi parishioner, they will waive the $10 fee for the background check. The time commitment depends on your schedule. You can sign up for assignments based on your availability.
