Retire United

Someone once said that you have to put off being young until you can retire. Another famously asked,  “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”

Those are the attitudes and the outlooks of the people who’ve joined us in Retire United.  They’re people who aren’t finished with anything.  They have a lifetime of knowledge and experience and the energy and desire to put it all to use in new and exciting ways to help those in need.  

If you’re one of them, we’re here to help you get connected:  to provide you with new ways to use the skills you’ve already developed or proven ways to help you develop new skills.  And to do it all to help improve the lives of others in your community.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES


You can help your community in ways that perhaps you’ve always envisioned, but never had the time for. We can connect you to fulfilling volunteer opportunities that align with your interests, passions, and skills. From helping children better their reading skills to helping file taxes for our neighbors in need, you can make a major impact by investing your time in our community.
