AAWGT: Making a difference in our community!

2014 Grantee: Partners in Care

The Partners in Care Member Services Program, using a time-exchange model, uses a large volunteer base to serve a wide variety of needs of elderly residents, allowing them to stay in their own homes while ensuring a safe environment and reducing isolation as well as relieving stress on caregivers. 

Volunteers provide rides to important destinations such as medical appointments, banks, and grocery stores.  Oter volunteers perform handyman repairs.  Staff and volunteers also assist elderly epople to find additional resources within the community such as legal help, access to food banks, alternative affordable housing, medical, eye or dental care and much more. 

AAWGT funds will benefit more than 400 older women this year.
