Village support from VoK’s volunteers might be a ride to the doctor, a friendly visit, or help with chores. It also means lively social activities and interest groups to keep you active and engaged. With trained and vetted Volunteers, VoK provides assistance for whatever you might want or need -- click on MEMBER SERVICES above to take a look. We provide social, educational, and recreational events regularly.

Important Note About Services: VoK's ability to provide services is dependent upon the availability of our volunteers. Naturally, the more notice we get from you, the more likely we will be able to find a volunteer willing & able to complete your request. We send out a weekly listing of service requests, so a week or more notice for a service request is ideal. In emergency situations, we will forward individual requests to our volunteers. We will always do our best to match a volunteer with your service request!
