Area Agency on Aging Palm Beach/TC

From 09/20/2019 to 09/01/2022

Since 2003, the Elder Rights Center has focused the energy and experience of our volunteers on serving senior victims of crime in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. All services are provided free of charge. As an Elder Rights Volunteer, you will provide important assistance by helping senior crime victims recover from the incident. You may call and send letters to crime victims to inform them about the victim's compensation program and provide information about making victim's compensation claims, information on the claim process, and referrals to additional community resources. You may review police reports, do data entry, or conduct research to help with individual cases as part of our advocacy work. The ideal volunteer possesses a strong desire to help others recover from crime as seamlessly as possible. We can create unique positions for our volunteers based on their skills and interests. We provide all training needed. No experience is necessary. Our volunteers enjoy socializing with staff and fellow volunteers. You are encouraged to attend our professional development workshops, social events, and staff meetings - you are part of our ADRC community! Please contact us if you are interested or would like more information about our program. We will invite you to come and meet with us so we can learn more about your life experiences, passions, and goals. As a new member of our Elder Rights Center, we want to get to know you! You will also complete a brief application and a successful background screening. We prefer a minimum commitment of 4 hours per week, but we are flexible. We have many volunteers with different time commitments - for example, some volunteer seasonally. Our volunteers establish their own hours based on their schedules. We look forward to having you on our Elder Rights team!
