Senior Corps Relinquishment RSVP FY 2012

Executive Summary

Montgomery Area Council on Aging (MACOA) was founded because the growing senior population needed a support system.  MACOA exists to help senior citizens maintain independent living by offering opportunities to enhance quality of life and increasing awareness of senior issues.  The proposed RSVP project will cover Talladega County.  We will recruit 150 volunteers.
 
Funding request:$52,500 ($350 x150)
 
 
 
Service Catagories:
 
Hospital and Clinical Support Services 
 
Food Security
 
Community Based Volunteer Programs
 
Benefits Assistance
 
 
 
Focus Area:
 
Veterans and Military Families
 
Beneficiary Population:
 
-Veterans, Active Military, or their families
 
-Seniors
 
-Community non profits
 
 
Meeting the needs of veterans and military family members is a civic priority of CNCS. There is a veteran's clinic and 7,080 (8.6% of the population) veterans currently in this county. Our research indicates that there is not an active volunteer corps at the clinic at this time.  Veterans that get involved in community service and volunteering have a more success acclamating back into society.
 
 
Anticipated outcomes:
 
-Veterans and their families will receive medical care and assistance because of volunteer service at the clinic
 
-Veterans will serve the community and hungry seniors
 
-Veterans will assist other veterans
