Description


Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers (IVC) is a Community Partnerships program of Family Services of Western PA and one of over 600 Faith in Action (www.fianationalnetwork.org) programs across the country.

IVC volunteers are matched with seniors and help by providing rides to medical and other appointments, assisting with grocery shopping, providing friendly visits, and conducting home safety checks. Volunteers and their senior care receivers often become friends and find out that everyone benefits from the volunteer match.
