Chore Corps NEEDS VOLUNTEERS!

  • Identify your skills (Plumbing, chores, carpentry, and electrical)
  • Choose the area of the county you would like to work in.
  • Let us know when you are available.
  • Requests are matched to your abilities.
  • You can either accept or reject the assignment.
  • Mileage reimbursement can be requested.

Working only a few hours per month could be a great benefit to our friends and neighbors who need a little help around their house, but don't have the skill, energy, or health to do the job, or the finances to hire a professional.

If you're interested in taking on a volunteer position which will really impact someone's quality of life, with minimal investment of time then,

"The Nuts and Bolts"

  • The Chore Corps is not a home remodeling program, nor does it replace professional contracted work.
  • The Chore Corps is a "fixit" program geared toward providing handyman type repairs and jobs around the house.
  • Chore Corps volunteers will respond as quickly as possible to meet a request.
  • Chore Corps volunteers MAY not be able or capable of meeting emergency requests.
  • The Chore Corps will not do any jobs involving ladders or smoke detectors.
  • The Chore Corps will not discriminate on the basis of handicap, sex, race, creed, national origin, or any other protected class.
  • The Chore Corps DOES NOT charge a fee for any work.
  • The cost of any materials used by the Chore Corps volunteer will be borne by the service recipient.
  • Donations to the Chore Corps are accepted.
The Chore Corps is a joint venture of the Warren County Division of Senior Services and The NORWESCAP, Retired Senior Volunteer Program.
