Candeo


Candeo is excited to announce a brand new program website for volunteers!  Consider sharing your time with a person with a disability, bridging the gap between getting out INTO the community and becoming a member OF the community.  Volunteer as a mentor, share your skills, help with an event, or connect our clients with groups and volunteer opportunities in Polk County.  Check out our volunteer opportunities, apply to volunteer, or contact jordan.murphy@candeoiowa.org with questions!

Arts, Crafts, and Games

Candeo clients are looking to connect with community members in a quiet setting with a creative goal. Some examples of this would be somebody to paint with or do other crafts, or a board game buddy or video game partner--even someone who would interact with our folks on XBOX Live/PS4 Network.
