Description

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity in your community? JASC is seeking volunteers to provide companionship and help with simple tasks at our Out of the House program for seniors! JASC’s Out of the House program for seniors is held once a week, providing exercise, counseling and educational opportunities, as well as activities designed for active adults that encourage socialization and address the isolation and loneliness of inactive seniors. Research has found that as seniors age, active individuals are more likely to remain in good health than inactive ones.

The ideal volunteer is kind, friendly, and has many stories and life experiences to share with our seniors. Volunteer responsibilities include serving food and drinks during Out of the House, light clean-up, and chatting with members of the program. Out of the House meets each Wednesday from 10 am to 1 pm at Christ Church of Chicago, 6047 N. Rockwell St., Chicago, IL
