GVSS has been providing services to Grimes area residents since February 2011.  Since then we have provided more than 6,800 trips (including over 2,200 to the Grimes Senior Meal Site), driven over 125,000 miles and contributed over 20,900 hours of service to organize and provide assistance to residents of the community.

GVSS has over 190 clients and over 85 volunteers providing services. 

Because of outstanding community support, we have grown tremendously since 2011.  We do not employ any staff but are an all-volunteer organization.  We continue to need additional volunteers.  If you are interested, please contact our office at 515-986-5355.

Since we began.....

Our Mission:  To provide needed services without charge to individuals in the Grimes area assisting them to remain in their home.

Have you thought about giving back to your community?  Join 80+ volunteers, retired and full time workers who MAKE time to help those in need.  They shouldn't have all the fun!  You limit when and how much you volunteer.

We were formed in 2010 to provide assistance to area residents to help them stay in their homes.  We are an all-volunteer organization that provides transportation and other services without charge to those in need.  Our focus has always been "neighbors helping neighbors".​​

Please stop by our booth at the Grimes Expo on Tuesday, March 28 at Performance Display.  Maybe you can bring along a prospective volunteer for us to sign up that evening.

If you've ever thought about volunteering for GVSS, now is a really good time for us to talk.


You have two options for free tax preparation assistance.  Check it out on our Resource Page.

ANOTHER thing to check out on our Resource page is information on two nearby local programs patterned after GVSS.  Bob King is heading up SAILDC,  www.saildc.org/ (Sustaining Active Independent Living in Dallas Center).   Gregg Erickson is heading up Volunteer Community Supports of Granger (www.VCSGranger.org).
