Barton County Community College
The primary focus area of this project is Healthy Futures. An estimated 350 RSVP volunteers will serve in the primary focus area through a network of 17 volunteer stations in Barton and Pawnee Counties. At the end of the 12 month performance period, they will assist seniors and persons with disabilities to age in place through home delivery of groceries and meals (140 unduplicated recipients), transportation to necessary medical appointments (145 unduplicated passengers) and to local enrichment activities (140 unduplicated passengers), and friendly visiting to provide companionship (25 unduplicated clients). They will assist residents of Barton and Pawnee Counties with emergency food through local food banks (6000 unduplicated recipients) and will provide long term hunger relief through the development and maintenance of community gardens (100 unduplicated recipients). The CNCS federal investment of $48,722 will be supplemented by $26,617 from non-federal resources.
