Since we began.....

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



GVSS has been providing services to Grimes area residents since February 2011.  Since then we have provided more than 9,300 trips (including over 3.300 to the Grimes Senior Meal Site), driven over 150,000 miles and contributed over 25,000 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.
