Kindness, Inc. begins 18th year!
On November 8, 2014, Kindness began its 18th year of offering services to keep our care receivers independent and living in their own homes.

Not only have we improved the quality of life for our neighbors who have age-related, chronic and low-vision problems, but Kindness has also made a world of difference in the lives of our volunteers. Kindness, is very grateful to its volunteers, many donors, supporters and community partners who have worked diligently and lovingly over the years to bring us to this joyful celebration of neighbor helping neighbor.

Is Santa's Elf Lying Down On The Job?

Don't worry! We'll wrap those gifts for you. No charge. Just make a donation of any size to Kindness, Inc. > More details here.

Send our link to everyone you know in Baxter and Marion counties who is over the age of 60, has a parent or grandparent, or a disabled elderly friend or neighbor. Urge them to visit our website. Kindness is the only nonprofit organization that provides services FREE of CHARGE to those who are disabled by vision, chronic and age-related problems. We are the only ones offering to keep people who should not be driving because of these problems off the road! We are the only nonprofit to help them maintain their independence and age with dignity in their own homes.

We need you to click on one of those Donate Now buttons. Please do it now!

To all of our volunteers and donors (quoting one of our board members), "Hey, y'all, thanks for all you've done and continue to do for Kindness!"

Monthly Volunteer Orientations
Orientations include a brief history of the agency, a ten minute video, discussion about the unmet needs of the elderly in Baxter & Marion counties, review of policies and procedures, and the responsibilities of volunteers and  care receivers, liability issues, review of the volunteer handbook, and the specific services we try to provide. Then we will review the volunteer application and make copies of drivers license and automobile insurance coverage cards of new recruits.

Remember that volunteers choose the services they are willing to offer, the days and times they are willing to volunteer as well as the area(s) where they are willing to go on their volunteer assignments.

Volunteer orientations are held once a month in our Mountain Home office and once a month or more at various facilities in Marion County.  Please send us an email or call us (870-425-6475) for dates and times.
