About

Do you have a passion for helping others? Are you looking for a way to connect and give back? Do you cherish elders and their treasure trove of experiences? If so, consider volunteering with Legacy Corps!

Their stories are not unique: A daughter juggling her father's VA appointments while still working full-time; a wife providing round-the-clock care for her husband who has Parkinson's Disease; a husband who lovingly bathes and dresses his wife, although she no longer remembers his name. Family caregivers comprise over 40,000 of our friends, neighbors, and fellow residents of the Treasure Valley. More often than not, these unsung heroes provide 24/7 care for their loved ones without a break. Legacy Corps wants to change that. Our volunteers provide 3-4 hours of companionship respite each week, giving family caregivers an opportunity to take care of themselves. If you have the desire to help others, listen to stories, provide your support to a family, or simply share your heart and a smile, we have many opportunities for you to shine. If you know someone who might like this opportunity, please pass it on.

AmeriCorps positions also available, providing opportunities to earn an education award (great gifts for your children or grandchildren!), monthly living allowance and in depth training and support.
