For a challenging and rewarding opportunity in volunteer service, become a certified Long-Term Ombuds. Volunteer ombuds advocate for residents of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and adult family homes. These volunteers contribute to higher levels of care and a better quality of life for residents. They help residents resolve concerns and complaints, help residents learn about their rights and make referrals to services in the community.
