Volunteer Opportunities

There are lots of volunteer opportunities at CCOA! Just ask!

Meals on Wheelsclientuploads/FBProfile_MoWYelo.jpg

Monday through Thursday, volunteer teams fan out across Caddo Parish helping seniors. Sometimes, the volunteers are the only people that seniors see all day. As a volunteer, you literally become a lifeline to our older citizens... And you just can't put a price on that. We can guarantee that not only will our actions change lives; your life will change in the process!

It is so easy to become a part of this program. Each volunteer delivers only 8 meals and it takes about 45 minutes. The meals are delivered to station all over town and then volunteers deliver to seniors living in the area of the stations. Stations can be businesses, churches or other organizations.

We make it easy, YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!



Ombudsman - Long Term Care Visitorsclientuploads/FBProfile_OmbudMud.jpg

Long-Term Care Visitors play an important role in the Ombudsman Program by:

  • Visiting weekly with residents on a "friendly" basis
  • Referring problems residents need help with to a certified ombudsman
  • Helping residents understand their rights
  • Raising public awareness about the Ombudsman Program

These volunteers initially complete six to eight hours of training and complete another six hours annually.
