Items we need

Money Management Volunteers needed

Our Money Management Program is looking for volunteers (preferably with a background in banking, bookkeeping & budgeting) to volunteer 1-2 hours a month! The volunteer will meet with an elder who needs assistance with paying their monthly bills, check writing (but not signing), checking bank statements and reading mail. The schedule is very flexible, training is provided! We are looking in the areas of Northampton, Amherst, Westfield, and Southwick. Please contact Scott Gullett, 413.582.9313 or email [email protected]    

Ombudsman Volunteers needed

You can make a big difference by becoming an Ombudsman volunteer! Highland Valley Elder Services has opportunities available to become an advocate for residents in nursing homes. Ombudsman is a Swedish word meaning “carrier of the message.” What an Ombudsman does is provide a friendly face, a listening ear, and a voice for vulnerable adults who might otherwise go unheard. To learn about becoming a volunteer ombudsman, contact Michele Wolf, Ombudsman Program Director at Highland Valley Elder Services at 413-588-5755 or email at [email protected]
