Rapp at Home volunteers provide short term individualized services to members of the community who may not have anyone else to lean on. Volunteers step up to provide assistance such as what family, neighbors, or close friends might offer, whether it be rides to doctors appointments or mowing the lawn. Our volunteers have attended training,had background and driving record checks, and sign a confidentiality agreement - but most importantly they are passionate about helping Rapp at Home members in the community.

There is no requirement for members to volunteer but many members enjoy the opportunity to help friends and neighbors - and then feel good about asking for help when they're the ones who need it.
