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 100 and 200 calls for service per month. 65 volunteers responded to 1484 calls for assistance and accrued 5222 volunteer service hours in 2008. 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.
VICaP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which receives funding from donations, service contracts and small grants.
Sierra Vista VICaP has been serving the elderly, disabled and home-bound in the Sierra Vista area since 1992.
About 80% of our volunteers are retired citizens from the local community.
Transportation is our most requested service. Shopping assistance is second.
VICaP refers and interacts with other agencies to provide a network of community services.
Donations are received from the United Way, service clubs, churches, memorials, individuals, businesses and foundations. Other ways of giving are through wills and in your estate planning. These contributions will help keep the VICaP office open and staffed and to provide services without charge.
Our staff and volunteers are available to speak to local organizations about our mission, goals and activities in the community.
