Mission Statement

Interlink Volunteer Caregivers (IVC), Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit, located in Twin Falls Idaho since 1997. IVC's mission is to provide volunteer transportation (FREE door through door) along with minor home safety modification (wheelchair ramps, handrails & grab bars) services to the elderly, (non-wheelchair) disabled, and chronically ill individuals. We give our clients "Access to Healthcare" and other essential services while "Giving the Gift of Home" so they can live independently, and safely in the comfort of their home regardless of their lack of financial/transportation/family resources. IVC uses a "workforce" of (trained and insured) volunteers who drive their own vehicles to provide transportation to access essential medical care. Our volunteers also provide minor home safety modifications to allow individuals more independence in their own homes along with helping the elderly to maintain a higher quality of life and self-reliance.

Description

IVC's "Access to Healthcare" transportation program continues to provide a safety net to the disadvantaged elderly, disabled, and chronically ill individuals to overcome the barriers to access care and other essential errands. IVC helps the most vulnerable to access their routine and life-saving medical appointments including COVID testing and shots. Some of the specific goas are getting more individuals to cancer and dialysis treatments, preventive healthcare like bone-density scans, mammograms, colonoscopy procedures and COVID vaccinations, not counting the pharmacy and grocery stops.

IVC is anticipating providing 3,000 client trips, with approximately 81,557 reimbursable volunteer miles with over 7,000 volunteer hours in 2021. Our dedicated volunteers will continue to serve all communities in the eight Magic Valley counties in Southern Idaho. All communities of the Magic Valley will be stronger and healthier because of IVC's volunteer commitment.

Volunteer are also needed for home safety modification (wheelchair ramps, handrails and grab bar) services.

IVC has continued to be the life-line by providing these services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our program's success is measured by the individuals we serve. Every day they are able to live at home is a huge benefit to the individual, their family, the health care system, and the community.

This organization is wonderful! To help people get to their medical appointments when they’d otherwise have to take a taxi is such a great feeling. I’d recommend ANYONE who wants to help their Twin Falls (and outlying areas) community to get involved with IVC!!!
