Elder Services throughout Central Washington

From companionship programs and volunteer services that help with day-to-day chores to relief for overburdened caregivers, we offer services to help this often-marginalized population.

Volunteer Services
Help low-income seniors to stay in their homes by assisting with transportation, housework, and yard work. Make a big difference by giving just a few hours per week.

Senior Companions (55+)

Senior companion volunteers provide emotional support and friendship. This can mean meeting at the senior’s home, giving them rides to appointments, doing crafts or other activities, but most of all just spending time with them.

Catholic Charities Housing Services in Prosser

Through affordable housing, homeownership, and a variety of resident services, we aim to reduce poverty in the communities we serve.

Self-Help Program
This “self-help” homeownership program offers first-time buyers the chance to achieve their dream of homeownership. Come alongside families to help them earn “sweat equity” in their new homes.
