With offices in Brockton and Plymouth, OCES is the largest provider of in-home and community-based services for older adults and people living with disabilities in Plymouth County and surrounding areas in Massachusetts.

OCES’ Volunteer Center serves as a central resource for volunteers as well as for local agencies offering volunteer opportunities.

Prospective volunteers can talk one-on-one with Volunteer Program staff who can assist them in their search for volunteering opportunities that fit their skills and interests. The Volunteer Center is equipped with computers for researching volunteer opportunities as well as brochures and other literature from organizations seeking volunteers. The Volunteer Center also serves as a designated space for volunteers to work together on specific projects, such as Letter Writing to Troops for National Days of Service and Remembrance.

Volunteers are integral to OCES’ Meals on Wheels Program, Money Management Program and Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Plymouth County, which is for individuals age 55+ and is part of the Americorps Senior network of programs.

“OCES’ volunteers help support many individuals in need through programs such as Meals on Wheels and Money Management,” explained Brenda Carrens, Community Programs Director. “OCES also helps community service partners find volunteers to meet their specific needs. For example, OCES recruits and matches volunteers for South Shore Habitat for Humanity, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, local food banks and Veterans service agencies, and many other Community Service Partners are part of OCES’ RSVP of Plymouth County.”
