WHEREVolunteers of America. Colorado, USA.
“The Yard Angels program has been providing seniors with assistance since it was established in 2012... for vulnerable seniors, the program helps with general yard maintenance, such as raking, weeding, mowing and trimming trees and bushes.”
"It's not always easy to find the words to express gratitude for a service, especially for seniors involved with Yard Angels. Having the burden of yard work lifted off their shoulders has been an immense blessing, even moving some to tears. "
Yard Angels volunteers are matched with an older adult to provide free yard work, landscaping help and lawn clean up for seniors.
Volunteers may work in a group or individually and provide either a one-time or an on-going commitment to maintain the yard of a senior in need.
Maintaining a tidy yard is important for senior safety. Depending upon the area in which they live seniors may also be subject to fines for not maintaining their yard.
Volunteers of America supports America's most vulnerable groups, including the frail elderly, people with disabilities, at-risk youth, homeless individuals, women in need, and veterans and their families.
