National Resource provided by National Volunteer Caregiving Network (NVCN)

Program Details

National Volunteer Caregiving Network (NVCN) is an interfaith volunteer caregiving initiative that brings together volunteers to help people of all ages with long-term health needs to maintain their independence for as long as possible. Program availability and eligibility vary from one geographic area to another based on age, illness type and other criteria. Services are listed by state on the Web site. Volunteers help those in need by providing non-medical assistance. Volunteer activities may include shopping for groceries, providing transportation to medical appointments, cooking meals, doing light housework, running errands and providing companionship through personal visits or phone calls. Volunteers may also provide respite care and relief for family caregivers. National Volunteer Caregiving Network volunteers come from churches, synagogues, mosques and other houses of worship, as well as the community at large. However, due to the interfaith nature of the program, volunteers are not permitted to recruit, counsel or persuade constituents towards any doctrines or beliefs. All services are offered free of charge, and a limited number of programs provide services in Spanish.
