Volunteers deliver the services
that Nourish the Human Spirit!

Pantry volunteer
Why are volunteers so vital to LifeCare Alliance’s success? Volunteers allow our services to reach all eligible clients with NO WAITING LIST! This helps us fulfill our goal of keeping homebound older adults and individuals with a medical challenge or disability safe, independent, and in their own homes, where they want to be!
LifeCare Alliance welcomes individual volunteers, as well as families, companies, schools, and community groups. Volunteer opportunities can include delivering Meals-on-Wheels, helping in our kitchens or food pantry, delivering pet food, and so much more!
