The Senior Companion Program (SCP) is actively looking for volunteers! 

The SCP Program recruits volunteers that are aged 55 or older to provide in-home services to the frail elderly that helps them remain living independently in their own homes. SCP volunteers provide companionship, light housecleaning, light meal preparation, short distance transportation, and respite care. All services are delivered at no cost to the client or recipient. We currently serve six counties: Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, Marion, Nelson, and Washington. 

Senior Companions are continuing to provide their companionship services within the homes of our communities. The SCP is still feeling the lingering effects from Covid19. There are currently 19 active volunteers, and we are hopeful to keep increasing the number of volunteers throughout the year! Last year our volunteers provided over 18,500 hours of service combined, to help keep our seniors in their homes!
