Lake County Council on Aging is grateful to serve such an active and service-oriented community! With over 500 volunteers and less than 50 staff, volunteers extend the agency's outreach in serving more elderly residents in need than would otherwise be possible. Our volunteer-to-staff ratio averages 14:1. Just as impressive, approximately 85-90% of our volunteers are active on a weekly or bi-weekly basis! Your service brightens and stabilizes the lives of our senior clients.
Volunteer opportunities exist for a diverse population. Corporate groups, service organizations, friends, siblings, families, and individuals all have an opportunity to assist our Lake County seniors. A range of volunteer positions are available to accommodate a variety of schedules. Whether you can help during weekdays, weekends, evening or the daytime, there is an option for you!
Most of our volunteer positions allow you to get to know our senior clients. Many of our clients regularly express their appreciation as they know volunteers are helping them through their day. Many of our agency volunteers express how much joy they get from volunteering for our clients.
If you have a few hours a week or month to share, please call Jennifer Pentek, Volunteer Services Manager, at (440) 205-8111 ext. 228 to get started.
