As a nonprofit organization, we include volunteers in our mission to help the older adults of Northwest Missouri remain independent and in the home of their choice for as long as possible.

The following programs offer an opportunity for you to contribute to this mission, and put your compassion to work for others.

Training and support are provided by Young at Heart as needed.
