Do you want to make a positive impact in your community? Volunteering is an excellent way to do just that. Whether you are part of a non-profit, school, religious, governmental, or civic organization, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and help out. In Baltimore County, the Department of Aging (BCDA) offers the Retired and Elderly Volunteer Program (RSVP), which provides ongoing training and recognition to volunteers. Additionally, the Volunteering in Baltimore County online portal allows people of any age to search for volunteer opportunities in the greater Baltimore region. For those looking to make a difference in their community, the Baltimore County Department of Aging's Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program is an ideal place to start.
This program provides compassionate and supportive individuals with the chance to connect with long-term care residents of Baltimore County and make a difference in their lives. If you are a non-profit, school, religious, governmental, or civic organization that would like to collaborate with the BCDA to recruit and manage volunteers, please fill out the necessary information. Through the local Baltimore County team, volunteers provide friendly home and phone visits to eligible older adults who lack social support and are at risk of social isolation. In just one hour a week, Home Team volunteers provide friendly home and phone visits to homebound seniors across Baltimore County. To learn more about how you can make an impact in your community, contact the Baltimore County Department of Aging and Long Term Care Ombudsman Program at 611 Central Avenue/Towson, Maryland 21204.
