The Center for Volunteer Caregiving helps older adults and adults with disabilities in Wake County live independently for as long as possible. All of our services are provided at no charge by community volunteers. We do not provide assistance with personal care services like toileting, dressing, bathing, meal preparation, and hands-on help with movement.

Last year, our volunteers provided more than 10,000 hours of services.
