Volunteer Opportunities:

1. Senior Health Insurance Program (SHIP) Volunteer - SHIP counselors are trained by the Illinois Division of Insurance to organize and assist in filing Medicare and Medicare Supplement claims and analyze Medicare supplement and long-term-care policies. Counselors also educate consumers and answer questions about Medicare and other health insurance issues. Volunteers must be 55 years & older.

2. Volunteer Drivers - Volunteers drive seniors to the grocery store, pharmacy or to personal care appointments.

4. The Friendly Visitor Program - This program matches seniors with a volunteer who visits on a weekly basis. The visit may include help writing letters, shopping, running errands, or simply a cordial visit and conversation.
