Introducing the Citizens’ Assurance Program, a thoughtful initiative offering daily phone calls to participants, designed to provide a sense of security for Williamson County residents living alone.
Open to any resident in Williamson County seeking the reassurance of daily contact, our program ensures that calls are made every day between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. We understand the importance of a consistent connection for those who may feel isolated.
To further accommodate our participants, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office has dedicated an answering machine exclusively for CAP members. This allows them to inform our volunteer callers if they will be unavailable during the standard call period, enhancing the program’s flexibility.
Volunteering for CAP is a fulfilling opportunity. Prospective volunteers are required to complete an application and attend a one-hour training session. As part of our commitment to safety, the WCSO may conduct a background check. Proficiency in email and Excel is essential for all volunteers.
Upon successful completion of the training, volunteers can choose their preferred daily call team and will be seamlessly integrated into the call rotation. In teams of two, volunteers alternate making calls every other week, with each call lasting approximately 25 to 45 minutes.
If you are interested in becoming a valued CAP Program volunteer, we invite you to complete the online Volunteer Application. Join us in making a positive impact on the well-being of our community members.
