CNCS Wisconsin State Office

CNCS Wisconsin State Office In 1993, the Corporation for National & Community Service was established to connect Americans of all ages with opportunities to serve their communities.

At its inception, CNCS was directed to manage three main programs: •The newly created Senior Corps, which incorporated the longstanding Foster Grandparents, RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program), and Senior Companions programs; •The newly created AmeriCorps, which incorporated the longstanding VISTA, the new National Civilian Community Corps programs, and the full-time demonstration program that had been established under the 1990 Act; and •Learn and Serve America, formerly known as Serve America. Today CNCS serves more than 5 million individuals of all ages and backgrounds help meet local needs through a wide array of service opportunities. These include projects in six priority areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families through CNCS’s core programs: AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Social Innovation Fund.

Become a Volunteer | Interfaith Caregivers of Ozaukee

One Interfaith Caregivers of Ozaukee County client can be heard saying: “I never expected a volunteer like Joe. He is such a good friend. He’s my savior.”

Meet Joe Graf! Joe drives Marilyn, an Interfaith Ozaukee client, to her appointments and errands. They have developed a special bond. Joe not only drives her several times per week, but also has helped her with projects around the house and checks with neighbors to be sure she is looked after when he’s not available. He even researched and installed a special musical doorbell so Marilyn can hear when she has a visitor. On nice days, Joe drives Marilyn in his convertible so she can feel the wind in her hair and really enjoy the ride.

Senior Corps members in Wisconsin continue to make a huge difference on this #WonderfulWednesday.

You too can become someone's savior. Consider RSVP: http://interfaithozaukee.org/become-a-volunteer

Become a Volunteer Potential volunteers are asked to fill-out a Volunteer Application and return it to Interfaith, before meeting with a Program Coordinator.

Program helps seniors in need

Senior Corps RSVP volunteer Bob Norder wanted to be a bus or truck driver as a kid, so it's no surprise the retired engineer loves to #GetThingsDone as a volunteer driver with Rock County Rsvp helping others get to medical appointments or go grocery shopping.The Seniors Volunteering for Seniors initiative has 80 volunteers serving more than 300 people in Rock County. Not only does the program solve transportation challenges, but it breaks the isolation many seniors experience. #IamSeniorCorps #SeniorCorpsWorks
