AmeriCorps Senior Companions

Senior Companion (SCP) volunteers provide direct support to seniors and those with limited mobility due to disabilities to help them stay in their homes. SCP volunteers are a vital source of companionship and assistance for seniors in need. With your compassionate presence and support, you can help seniors maintain their independence, improve their quality of life, and foster lasting friendships.

Volunteers who qualify can receive an hourly (nontaxable) stipend and earn up to an extra $8,320 per year plus mileage reimbursement. Most importantly, thanks to Section 404 of the Domestic Volunteer Services Act of 1973, any stipend or mileage earned will not impact your eligibility for income-based housing, food stamps, or other benefits you may receive because payments to AmeriCorps participants cannot be treated as wages or compensation for any government purposes.

SCP is available in Benton, Franklin, Walla Walla, Klickitat, Yakima, Kittitas, Chelan, Douglas, and Grant Counties.
