Sixty low-income, homebound seniors are served through SOME's Homebound Senior Program.

Homebound Senior Program
Throughout the year, volunteers are needed to provide companionship to the homebound and isolated elderly. Volunteers may assist in food delivery, errand running, transportation to and from medical appointments, telephone reassurance, preparation of light meals, and/or light housekeeping. This opportunity would be great for an individual as well as for a small group of volunteers to work as a care team for one homebound senior citizen.

Kuehner Senior Center
SOME's Senior Center is looking for volunteers to facilitate both individual projects and group projects. We are looking for individuals available to escort participants on trips or walks in the neighborhood. Fitness instructors, dance Instructors, manicurists, hair stylist or braider, and arts and crafts instructors are needed to lead classes and workshops with seniors in our day program.

Volunteers are needed to facilitate a group birthday party for our seniors. This is a wonderful opportunity for small groups that want to volunteer on a regular basis. Volunteer groups that are able to commit to once a month for one hour are preferred.
