NVCN Round Table Discussion

NVCN Round Table Discussion 
Getting on Message to Demonstrate the Impact of Volunteer Caregiving 

Thursday, July 27, 2017
9- 10:30 a.m. PST 

Program Directors Eric Ehst, Arizona's Neighbors Who Care, and Tammy Glenn, California's CAREGIVERS, can show you how to collect data and do the numbers.  The challenge they wrestle with is how to use the numbers to effectively communicate the value of volunteer caregiving in their respective communities.  Let's talk about it.  If we can perfect our local arguments, then NVCN can make a stronger case for us nationally.  We know that Volunteer Caregiving is one of the oldest and most utilized from Boston to Florida, throughout the heartland to the territories of Guam and Puerto Rico.  We know it.  Now let's find a better way to illustrate our impact and strengthen our ties in new arenas where Volunteer Caregiving remains a hidden secret.  To help us guide this conversation, please submit your questions and thoughts in advance to Eric Ehst <nwcexecdir@gmail.com> and Tammy Glenn <tammy@vccaregivers.org>.

Members Only. 
RSVP by Monday, July 24 to Info@NVCNetwork.org

Communities nationwide are benefiting from volunteer generosity; below are some examples:

The Wisconsin winters are long and heating fuel is high; families receive donated wood cut and delivered by volunteers. 

In Oregon eighty to one-hundred food boxes are delivered each month; additionally, about 400 families utilize their food bank on a monthly basis.

Guess what? Life expectancy is 7-10 years longer than driving expectancy. Transportantion is an overwhelming need for our senior neighbors. Most programs report driving seniors to medical appointments, to the grocery store, or even to get their hair done as their most requested service.

An Illinois neighbor:  “This is just a little note which cannot begin to express my thanks for the transportation to my radiation treatments. I am so grateful for Faith in Action. It is so well organized, and your volunteers are a very special group of people who give their time to help others. I am so fortunate to have learned about volunteer caregiving. You have made my somewhat overwhelming experience into one with unexpected blessings.”

Michigan: "Without your help I wouldn’t survive.  You are the only ones I can turn to for help. I’m not in good health but I’ll never forget you.  I thank God for you!"
