We are working to identify the highest priority volunteer needs to help communities responding to COVID-19. We are partnering with state agencies, local governments, and nonprofits throughout the state who have unmet volunteer needs.

I want to reach out to seniors in my area, is there a list I can use to contact people?

We’re asking Californians to check in on their neighbors or family members who are older and more vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Californians can safely help older adults and those with chronic health issues who are at higher risk from COVID-19. We can all safely do our part to make sure we stay healthy.

When reaching out to neighbors we encourage you to follow all current guidelines from the California Department of Public Health, which can be found at www.covid19.ca.gov.

Why can I volunteer but not return to work?

Many of the volunteer opportunities are available to do from home or are considered essential during the stay-at-home order.

Will testing or PPE be provided to volunteers?

Organizations requesting volunteers are expected to comply with all safety guidelines outlined by the California Department of Public Health. If you are matched with an organization, we encourage you to ask their staff what equipment available and what procedures are have been put in place to ensure volunteer safety.

I signed up for California Health Corps, why haven't I been contacted?
