The Center for Volunteer Caregiving is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage the community in providing volunteer services to improve the lives of seniors, caregivers and adults with disabilities.
The Center recruits volunteers to help seniors (age 60+) and adults with disabilities, living at home, with tasks they can no longer do for themselves. Assistance includes respite care to family caregivers, friendly visits to the homebound, transportation for essential needs (e.g. medical appointments, food), and light chore services. We do not provide personal care or services of a medical or healthcare nature.
All volunteers undergo a criminal background check, character reference check, and must attend an orientation session. Group orientations sessions are generally scheduled monthly and ONLINE ORIENTATION is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please visit our website: www.volunteercaregiving.org
Our mission is to serve in all parts of Wake County to the extent that we can find volunteers.
In addition to individual volunteers, we welcome businesses and faith organizations to contact us about how we can create satisfying volunteer opportunities for their employees and members.
The Care Receivers quickly become the brightest spot in my day. You think it's all about helping someone in need and then discover, the sweet ones you are helping are really making a positive impact in your life too.
This is a wonderful organization that makes it easy to be a volunteer as they provide relevant training, take great care in matching clients to volunteers and are there to support volunteers in all ways needed.
