The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
You can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer's.
How many individuals and families in your faith community (church, synagogue, mosque) are affected by memory related diseases, Alzheimer's, or dementia? How many of them know where to go? Have someone to talk to? Have access to area resources and support? How many are so busy being caregivers, raising children, and working that they can't seem to find the time to get help? Help us fill this gap and meet their needs!
Alzheimer's Association Faith Ambassadors serve within their own faith communities by raising awareness, delivering educational programs, and assuring congregants have access to information and resources.
Join our growing team of compassionate and enthusiastic Faith Ambassadors. Interested individuals will make a year commitment to serve as a liaison between their own faith community and the Alzheimer’s Association - Western Carolina Chapter.
