 The El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA), Office of the Public Guardian is currently looking for a community volunteer to assist with general office duties. The volunteer will help with tasks such as organizing paperwork, filing, and photocopying documents. Program staff are hoping to find a volunteer who can help 15-20 hours per week during normal business hours in their Placerville office.

The program serves residents Countywide. “We provide an important safety net in the community for people who are not able to help themselves,” said Alexis Zoss, Chief Assistant Director of HHSA and the Public Guardian Conservator. “We are looking for a special volunteer who has a place in their hearts for serving people and who likes office work.”
