Did you know that older Americans who volunteer frequently live longer, report fewer disabilities, experience lower rates of depression and express higher levels of well-being? OCES offers a variety of volunteer opportunities that we will match to your interests.
Here are some volunteer opportunities:
- Support our Nutrition Program by delivering Meals on Wheels.
- Support our Money Management Program by helping someone balance their budget and pay their bills on time.
