COA Volunteer Program

Mansfield senior citizens are encouraged to participate in COA volunteer opportunities. Placements are at the center or out in the community, and work assignments are often tailored to the skill level of the volunteer.

Homeowners who pay real estate taxes may wish to participate in the tax work-off program, which allows a volunteer work assignment with a town department. A real estate tax credit is granted of up to $750.00, and is determined by amount of time worked.

Call the COA for more information at (508) 261-7368.
