One program that makes a huge impact for older adults is SHICK also known as Senior Health Insurance Counseling for Kansas. Our eight trained volunteer counselors cannot begin to help everyone in Johnson County with their Medicare Health and Drug plans.
We need volunteers to help these aging residents navigate the Medicare Maze. If you enjoy working with others, can use a computer and want to make a difference, then this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you!
