Blair Senior Services, Inc. provides many volunteer opportunities for local senior residents who want to get involved or give back to the community. Through our VOICE program, we provide internal volunteer opportunities that support many of our departments’ programs. We also support Senior Corps programs through the Corporation for National & Community Service that enable seniors to help the broader community.
