Volunteer Opportunities

Why Volunteer with MAS?

As Missoula's volunteer hub, we offer a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for short-term, long-term and episodic projects that visibly make a difference in our community. We are always looking for enthusiastic, compassionate, and motivated volunteers to deliver meals to homebound members of our community, advocate for residents in long-term care facilities, help us provide superior customer service and share our story with the larger community. Missoula Aging Services is fortunate to offer volunteer opportunities to all ages as well as special opportunities for individuals 55 years of age and older. Senior Corps offers unique volunteer opportunities for individuals looking to put their skills and experience to use in the community. Click here to see the current opportunities available through RSVP. Other links on this page will provide information about both Senior Corps volunteer opportunities and opportunities for all ages at Missoula Aging Services.

Two Volunteers Chosen for AARP Montana’s Andrus Award

Ann Adler has been a volunteer with Missoula Aging Services since 2008. As a member of the Front Office Staff, Ann works at the very busy reception desk and responds to all manner of inquiries from a diverse aging population. MAS staffs over 40 employees all responding to the needs of seniors within our portion of the State of Montana. One of Ann's primary tasks is to direct inquiries to the appropriate staff. Visitors to our office may ask about senior nutrition options, housing, Medicare, or may have more pressing needs like personal safety or matters of fraud. Ann responds to all inquiries with respect and confidence. Additionally, because Ann is so competent in her work, she is able to cover the front desk unassisted allowing other staff members to work on other time sensitive projects.

Chue Vang joined the Senior Companion team at Missoula Aging Services in May of 2011. Since that time he has given a documented 5,126 hours of service and has served more than 25 clients. Chue aids with ensuring bills are paid, language translation, and transportation to and from medical appointments. He also contributes to the senior nutrition and farming communities by helping the Hmong vendors at Farmers’ Market to understand and fill out paperwork correctly for Farmers’ Market Coupon reimbursement.
