Thanks and Giving; Please Give Today!
All over Wake County, families are struggling to take care of themselves while caring for those they love. If it is not you, someone in your neighborhood is a caregiver and chances are they are getting help from The Center whether it be from a respite volunteer, Prelude Respite program or as a participant in our Caregiver Academy.
Give Today

Here's one of the many stories about a caregiver who is receiving no cost services from The Center for Volunteer Caregiving.

In 2010, Adele’s long journey as a caregiver began; one which brought her to The Center. Each day brought new challenges. Initially, she continued to teach and was able to leave Nick at home. The few hours of visits from The Center’s volunteers provided comforting support. Then over the years, as Nick’s disease progressed and multiple care options failed, Adele began to rely more and more on The Center.

Adele says The Center “has greatly enriched both our lives, I feel more “normal” having others share my world.” Read more about Nick and Adele (or watch the video above) in our Caregiver Feature. The Center has been a resource to caregivers just like Adele for over 25 years. Getting people to the doctor, providing respite, and helping them to keep their loved ones home as long as possible.

Please consider a gift of $100 or whatever you are able to give to support The Center for Volunteer Caregiving and ensure that volunteer caregiving continues in Wake County. Our goal for our Fall Giving Campaign is $25,000. We need your support in order to keep helping families including Adele and Nick.

Thank you for helping make our 25th year the best by giving today! It's easier than ever to give gifts in honor or memory of someone.

Transportation volunteers are coordinated daily by The Center to provide escorted round trip rides for those who don’t drive, can’t use public transportation and have nobody to help with basic needs such as getting to medical appointments, buying groceries or picking up medicines.

With Caregiver Support, help comes from respite volunteers and from learning about resources in the community. Volunteers provide companionship to care receivers who should not be left alone so caregivers can get needed time off.

In-Home Connections volunteers offer friendly visiting in the home or on the phone, and help with chores that are essential for health and safety. This makes the difference in staying independent and connected to the community.
