Pima Council on Aging Inc
An estimated 302 RSVP volunteers will serve older adults, homebound elders, and persons with disabilities, including but not limited to veterans, refugees and people of Hispanic origin. The primary focus area is Healthy Futures. Activities will include Medicare counseling, personal financial literacy, and transportation to medical, grocery and social services. Eight stations (1 area agency on aging and 7 non-profit neighborhood based stations) will provide services. At the end of the 12 month period, we anticipate 150 individuals (homebound and/or older adults and/or persons with disabilities) will report having increased social ties or perceived social support. Particular effort will be made to reach and expand these services to elder and disabled veterans as well as identify those veterans who are currently being served.
The CNCS federal investment of $58,420 will be supplemented by $60,049.
