“Something I will always remember about doing Meals on Wheels is just seeing the smiles on people’s faces when we bring them their meals. Also forming relationships with them
and looking forward to seeing them each week.”
- Lauren H. (Grade 12)
For over 50 years, volunteers have assisted with many of the programs Family Service Rochester offers.
Starting with Meals on Wheel in 1972, our volunteers have been vital to delivering our mission by supporting and enhancing dignity and quality of life.
Volunteers assist with various services, including Neighbors Helping Neighbors, Meals on Wheels, Senior Café, Home Safety Visits, Family Access Center, Fundraising and Visibility Events, and our Board of Directors.
“I volunteer because I believe it is an important aspect to the healthy cohesion of a community and provides a good example to my children for developing traits of responsibility and appreciation as they grow up.” -Drew L.

Home safety can become a challenge as we age, especially when living alone. A particular concern is a fact that there’s no one around to help should a medical emergency like a fall occur.
As a trained volunteer you will meet with older adults in their home and complete a safety checklist. You will provide them with recommendations and resources to reduce common tripping hazards and improve health and safety in their home.
