The elderly and home-bound citizens are often the
forgotten among us. They are quiet. They are not visible. They are lonely. They have lived long and sometimes hard years. The volunteers at Interfaith Volunteer Care
Givers strive to give them companionship, recognition, respect, and even
assistance to lighten up their lives. The “thank you” notes and calls we get are testimony to how grateful and
appreciative the recipients of our care giving really are. Just a simple one hour visit or an occasional
phone call can be the bright spot in their week.
I am honored to be the Chair of the Board of Directors
of this wonderful organization that can be so important to our seniors. We have hopes and plans for expanding our
services to help fill some of the unmet needs that we witness every day in the
work that we do. We are always seeking
additional dedicated board members, volunteer staff, and funding as we strive
to meet those needs.

A strong community not only meets its members’ basic needs but also works to create long-term solutions to their problems. Provide people with affordable housing, enough to eat and access to affordable health care and you enable them to envision a better future for themselves.
Greater New Haven’s vibrancy is linked to its communities’ support of its neighborhoods, public gardens and sports, as well as its commitment to the protection of its people and pets.
A healthy community is a rich community. When we enjoy good health, when we engage in wellness activities – and when we support people living with disease or disabilities -- there are profound physical and psychological benefits. Simply put, we are all stronger and happier. To support the health and wellness initiatives in your community is to put good health within reach of all.
