The Volunteer Center at HANCI provides three volunteer-based programs under one umbrella. Each program empowers older adults to help make their community a better place to live through volunteering their time and effort in a variety of capacities.
The benefits of volunteering are countless. Not only do volunteers make a real difference in the lives of the people they serve, but they stay active and connected in the community, feel a sense of independence, and gain confidence.
All three programs of the Volunteer Center at HANCI are committed to serving their community and enriching the lives of older adults. To find out more information about each program, visit the links below:
- The Foster Grandparent Program gives seniors an opportunity to work with children in need. A foster Grandparent can be a mentor, tutor, caregiver and role model to a child. Foster Grandparent Program volunteers make new friends and achieve the satisfaction of helping to shape the future.
- The Senior Companion Program unites healthy seniors with homebound seniors who need the warmth and bond of a new friend. A Senior Companion can improve someone's quality of life ... simply by being a friend.
- The Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) helps people 55 and older find volunteer opportunities to match their skills and interests. RSVP volunteers are stationed throughout schools, museums, healthcare facilities, community agencies and government offices.
