If you like meeting people and want to serve your community, The Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program of Southeastern Washington can use you!

The Ombudsman Program trains and supports volunteers to regularly visit long-term care facilities to build relationships with residents and to address their concerns and issues. Long-term care facilities include nursing homes, assisted-living communities, and adult family homes.

Volunteers are needed in Asotin, Benton, Columbia, Franklin, Garfield and Walla Walla counties.

Individuals and couples are welcome to apply. The only qualifications are that you must be an adult, live in Washington State, and commit to serving up to four hours per week to help ensure others' rights.

The Ombudsman Program is sponsored by Blue Mountain Action Council, Walla Walla.
