A volunteer recruiter for the Iowa Department of Human Services says she’s always looking for extra help, but could really use it now in light of the cuts to her agency’s budget. Janet Ford says they’re looking people in Southeast Iowa to drive clients to medical appointments. Ford says they reimburse drivers for the mileage. She says it’s a great opportunity for someone who’s retired, or not currently working due to a disability. She says they’re also looking for clerical volunteers in Washington and Fairfield offices.
