AssistHers, a non-profit organization, has been providing a care team approach to helping lesbians living with illness or injury to maintain their independence as they recover their health or learn to live with physical challenges.
What do we do?
- We work in teams. We walk dogs, run errands, help with laundry and light housekeeping
- We take care of the little things so that women can focus on getting well
- We provide non-medical help, lend a hand, and lend encouragement to women and their caregivers
Who do we help?
- Our clients are lesbians with either a short term recovery period or who are dealing with a chronic or terminal illness/disabling condition.
Who are We?
- We are women and men from every walk of life. We take a practical hands-on approach to building community, one life at a time.
- We also enjoy the social aspect being a volunteer with like-minded people.
What do we need from you?
- About six to eight hours a month which includes Client care/committee work and 2nd Saturday, our monthly Volunteer meeting.
