Your volunteer work will assist CARES in its mission to help older adults stay at home, stay connected, stay independent, and stay informed. With the help of more volunteers like you, CARES can continue to provide Pasco County Florida with excellent health, social, and supportive services to our older adults, their families, and their caregivers
—creating a better community for everyone!

We offer programs to help seniors avoid isolation, sadness, and sometimes even illness by embracing and fully enjoying their lives.  There are many ways you can help! We work with people of all skill levels and ages.
