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

The Senior Companion Program just finished out the 2022 fiscal year ending in June. We had 19 volunteers who served over 20,000 hours combined last year to those in need in our communities.

The Senior Companion Program & Retired Seniors Volunteer Program Directors are currently in the process of putting together the details for the Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon to be held this fall. Our volunteers look forward to this Recognition each year. It’s a great way to thank them for all of their time and dedication to our programs. We are currently in need of entertainment for the recognition. If there’s anyone available whom you think our seniors would enjoy, please feel free to contact us!

SCP is currently accepting new volunteers to join our program! We currently have 18 active volunteers serving. The stipend for our volunteers was just raised to $4.00 per hour as of April 1st, 2023. SCP serves in 6 counties including Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, Marion, Nelson, and Washington. Great benefits include a tax-free stipend, mileage reimbursement, sickness and vacation time. All applicants 55 and older must undergo background checks, fingerprinting, and must be income eligible.

Please contact SCP Director Courtney Campbell at 270-692-2136 or if you have any questions or would like more information about volunteering!
