Every year, Nevada Count children are removed from their families due to the abuse and/or neglect they have suffered. These children become dependents of the court system and need a committed, caring adult to advocate for them in court and support them throughout the court process. We are looking for volunteers who can make a minimum one-year commitment and approximately 12 hours a month. Training is provided.

Volunteers are needed in the Penn Valley area to work one on one with senior clients in an adult daycare setting. Assistance is needed Monday/Tuesday or Friday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Volunteers will help with arts and crafts and spend time with clients.
