Community Care Corps Welcomes its Third Cohort of Grantees

Earlier this fall, Community Care Corps announced the 23 grantees that will receive funding totaling $2.85 million over 12 and 18-month periods. This cohort of grantees will develop or enhance innovative local programs that use volunteers to provide family caregivers, older adults and adults with disabilities with nonmedical assistance to help maintain their independence. These volunteer-based models provide supports such as transportation, shopping, running errands, home maintenance and repair, and teaching the use of technology to help people connect with loved ones and much needed medical care.
