Civano Aging in Community provides services to our neighborhood residents who are elderly and/or disabled under the auspices of the Pima Council on Aging. We receive training and other help from the Council, and in return we report to them on our activities.

The kinds of help provided range from assistance with small tasks such as light housekeeping or yard work to providing transportation or simply friendly visits and doing errands. All these kinds of help are provided at no charge, and make it possible for many people to remain independent. During November, 13 volunteers provided services to 41 individual clients; this was a total of 856.5 donated hours of service.

Bob Small serves as program coordinator, while Sharlene Gillette is the volunteer manager, with Judie Kelly the client manger. To learn how to become a volunteer, or if you need assistance, please contact one of these people. It is another way to help make this community of Civano a great place to live.
