Volunteering is a valuable part of every healthy community. Volunteers come from all segments of society and often provide essential services. Everyone has the potential to contribute strength and resources in times of emergency. There are valuable and appropriate roles for unaffiliated spontaneous volunteers in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.


We are open and working but closed to the public due to the Governors mandate that we all work from home. Caring Choices is considered an essential service but in keeping with trying to keep our staff and community safe our offices are now closed to the public. We ask if you have specific needs to call your case manager at our toll free number and 1-866-703-3873 . Our answering service will get in contact with your case manager and we will return your call ASAP.
