About the Backpack Program:

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.

Volunteers receive 32 hours of training to become state certified Long-Term Care Ombuds. Training sessions are scheduled on an ongoing basis.
