The Caregivers Volunteer Engagement 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 in support of multiple programs within The CareGivers. This effort would help the CareGivers to expand its client base to include more low income, homebound, and economically vulnerable seniors in Southern New Hampshire. The VISTA member will work to collect data and track statistics that will help in the expansion of existing programs and in the retention of volunteers.
