Anyone can make a referral — clients can call to request services themselves or be referred by family members, friends, neighbors, caregivers, doctor’s offices, or Social Service agencies and organizations.
Once a client is referred to SEARCH, we schedule an in-home meeting to assess needs. Our Program staff matches clients with volunteers chosen for their ability to fulfill each client’s unique needs. All volunteers are thoroughly screened and trained. Depending on availability, they contribute 3 to 4 hours of time each week, or bi-weekly, depending on the needs of the clients.
