Americorps VISTA Member: Phone Reassurance Program Development

Will work directly with the Director of Meals & More to establish a sustainable volunteer phone reassurance program. The program will ensure that older adults and those of any age with a disability who have little to no support systems receive periodic interaction with volunteers through telephone wellness checks. Wellness checks function as a safety net acting both as communication and assessment tools to capture snapshots of a beneficiary’s well being. This provides interaction an individual would not otherwise receive due to his or her lack of support systems. Playing an integral part in developing, executing and tracking the program, the VISTA member will gain significant experience and knowledge in community programming and development and volunteer management. .
