The Caregivers Outreach and Volunteer Recruitment VISTA
 
 
 
The CareGivers’ mission is to help the frail, elderly, and disabled maintain their independence and dignity through the spirit of volunteerism. In operation since 1984, The CareGivers harnesses the compassionate commitment of volunteers to provide transportation, companionship and essential groceries deliveries to homebound seniors and disabled individuals living in the Greater Manchester and Nashua area. Clients are basically homebound; no longer in possession of an automobile and unable to consistently afford taxi service or access public transportation. The median age is 77, and 85% are women while 93% live alone. More than one-third served in the military or married a veteran. They subsist on meager, fixed incomes and experience difficulties affording fundamental needs.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will recruit volunteers and volunteer teams, along with cultivating relationships with local businesses and community organizations, helping the CareGivers to expand its client base to include more homebound and economically vulnerable seniors in Southern New Hampshire to provide medical transportation and monthly deliveries of nutritious groceries to more economically vulnerable seniors and disabled individuals. The VISTA team member would also help to craft a comprehensive volunteer recruitment plan and initiate outreach strategies to network with area businesses and community leaders in order to recruit new volunteer teams and find sponsors to provide regular financial support to allow our programs to grow.
