How do I count these hours? Your service hours begin from the time you leave your home, not just the time that you spend with your client. It is the total of the time that you set aside for your service.
As you record your hours, please keep track (to the nearest quarter hour) of the time you assist your client with each direct service task.
The total number of volunteer hours are reported to the State of Washington, enabling the Volunteer Chore Program to access the allocated funds to help pay for the program.
