Help a Senior (HAS)

This program is basically one of “friendly support”. A volunteer establishes a one on one relationship with a senior in need. Our goal is to give these seniors a little time of caring each week. This caring might just be a visit, or a follow up phone call after a doctor’s visit, or a trip to the grocery store or food pantry, if they don’t have transportation. Men and women volunteers are needed.

Hill Country Recording for the Handicapped

The Needs Council is a collection point for recorded tapes.

Medical Transportation

Volunteer drivers provide transportation to medical appointments for elderly individuals who have no other resource for transportation.

Parenting

Parents earn credit toward licensed child care upon completion of the “Parenting with Love and Logic” course.
