Telephone reassurance and/or regularly scheduled visits to the residence provides companionship, social interaction, and assistance as needed.  Assistance can include errands, material aid, commodity delivery, shopping, meal delivery, and housecleaning. The Center utilizes staff and volunteers to provide outreach and visitation through the HELP program. Staff schedules structured visits and serves those who are economically disadvantaged and in need. Staff also recruits and trains volunteers. The HELP Program Coordinator, full-time staff, and HELP Program Assistant, part-time staff, work specifically in this program.
