Volunteer Services


KAFASI is proud to be Kenosha County's largest volunteer organization. Studies show volunteers experience increased longevity, less stress, and lower blood pressure. With over 15 programs, we will do our best to match you with an opportunity that fits your personality, and your schedule!

 

 Opportunities

Frozen Meal Deliveries:

  • Frozen Meals are picked up from the KAFASI office once a week and delivered to home bound residents.
  • In person meal delivery provides regular social interaction and a brief safety check.
