Volunteer with Community Care

 Want to join our team of over 600 volunteers?

With an aging population, demand for our programs and services is on the rise which presents an equal need for volunteers.  

We have many flexible options throughout the City and County of Peterborough that can fit your schedule, whether it is once a week or once a month.  Our volunteering opportunities give you a chance to make a real difference in the life of seniors or adults with disabilities in your community.

"What do I love about volunteering with Community Care?" said a volunteer.  "The relationships that have been created.  The feeling that I get doing something of value for another person that I did not know before."

If you have some time to give, please fill out the below volunteer application form, and a staff member will contact you.
