Do you have a passion for helping others? Join the CARE program as a volunteer to help maintain the safety and independence of local older adults in need. 

CARE volunteers assist with projects inside and outside the home that enable older adults to stay safe in their homes as long as possible.

CARE is a new collaborative program for homeowners aged 60 or older who live in the cities of Cleveland Heights, Highland Heights, Lyndhurst, Maple Heights, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, Solon and South Euclid.
