1. Chelsea Community Senior Services (C2S2)
We’ll Help You Stay Put!
The Chelsea Senior Center, in conjunction with Silver Maples and other community partners, has launched a program called Chelsea Community Senior Services (C2S2) to help local seniors remain independently in their own homes. C2S2 provides seniors access to needed services using volunteers or through referrals to vetted and discounted service providers. This program, which creates a network of essential resources for local seniors, is possible through generous grants from the 5-Healthy Towns Foundation, Chelsea Community Foundation, and Washtenaw County Coordinated Funders. For additional information click here for frequently asked questions.
C2S2 is seeking volunteer and local businesses to provide services such as transportation, friendly visits, basic home maintenance, check-in calls, light gardening or yard work, assistance with electronics, and pet care. We are interested in hearing about the skills you can share with local residents. This is a great opportunity to assist local seniors so they can continue to live at home while remaining connected to their community. Please click here for a Volunteer Application or here for a C2S2 Service Provider Application application. To access services or to volunteer, please contact Mackenzie Pfeiffer or Emily Kennedy at 734.475.9242.
2. Meals on Wheels
Every year we serve over 25,000 senior lunches from our Center. Our Meals on Wheels supports over 100 homebound seniors and is made possible with thousands of volunteer hours. If you would like to volunteer in the kitchen packaging meals, Monday through Friday, from 9 to 11:00 a.m., please download a kitchen helper application.
We always need volunteer drivers to deliver meals. This important service ensures that our homebound seniors receive a hot meal and a friendly smile Monday through Friday. Please download the driver application here. Call or stop by the office and we’ll answer any questions you have or click on the Senior Nutrition Handbook for more information.
3. Senior Center Office
When you visit the Senior Center, it’s important to us that you are greeted warmly by someone who can help get you what you need. Who better for that than members of the Senior Center? Each day we are fortunate to have 2 volunteers staff our front desk (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) who assist us with light office work. If you are interested in volunteering to work ot our front desk, please stop by the office or you can download an application here.
