 VICaP has just received a "Trusted Transportation Partner" grant with support from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. This grant will allow us to provide older adults and visually impaired community members with free transportation to eye care services.  This award also recognizes VICaP as offering the highest quality transportation services for seniors.   We are one of 60 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive this recognition. Now is the time to call for a ride. Whether it's an ophthalmologist appointment, the optometrist, or even just a ride to get prescription eyeglasses, VICaP can get you there.

The Volunteer Interfaith Caregiver Program is a non-profit organization providing services to the elderly, disabled and home-bound residents of Sierra Vista and nearby rural communities in Cochise County. These services are provided free of charge by trained volunteers from faith congregations, community organizations and local businesses. Our goal is to help our neighbors continue to live independently and maintain their quality of life.

Our neighbors frequently request VICaP services after a life changing event which limits their independence. Trained VICaP volunteers work together to provide services to our neighbors without charge.

The VICaP office receives between 300 and 400 calls for service per month. 88 volunteers responded to 4700 calls for assistance and accrued over 10,000 volunteer service hours. All of our trained volunteers provide their services free of charge.

In short, VICaP volunteers' services help to prolong the time that elderly, disabled, and home-bound adults can be contributing, productive members of our community.
