Food & Friends: Meals on Wheels
A senior meal program designed to support independent living in Grants Pass. Many volunteers are needed to deliver smiles and meals each day. Volunteers generally commit to two hours, one day a week, but any type of volunteer help or commitment is always welcome!

Concerned Fathers Against Crime (C-FAC)
A mobile "neighborhood watch" organization that uses cellular phones and goes where the county and the city need us most. We are not a substitute for trained law enforcement personnel; in fact, we depend on them entirely. We are an "eyes and ears only" patrol that seeks to be of service to the men and women who risk their lives every day to ensure our safety, and the safety of our families. The secret to Concerned Fathers Against Crime has always been lots of men committed to doing only a little. C-FAC asks the fathers of the community (and fathers to be) for only one patrol every two months. Six patrols a year is the entire commitment for the average C-FAC volunteer.

Concerned Mothers Against Crime (C-MAC)
C-MAC is a simple network of mothers (and would-be mothers) prayerfully equipped to use "hand-written notes" to make a difference, locally and nationally, by expressing love and caring--and all for less than one hour of invested time per two month cycle! C-MAC is set up for one basic reason: to stop the "child-molesting culture" that surrounds us all. The public square is not private property! It is every adult's responsibility to protect the children of the community. C-MAC groups meet only when necessary. Choose what works for you!

3-4 hours on First Saturdays, once every two months. Work with local teenagers to patrol the city's downtown picking up litter and reporting graffiti. This easy task not only keeps the downtown cleaner and allows adults and youth to work together, but it also sets an important example of community connectedness. Our motto is, "Serving our Community by Supporting our Youth." One Saturday morning - every two months - is all we ask, and this allows busy but conscientious citizens to join the fun of being part of something pro-active, effective, and easy to fit in our lives.
