Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers
(IVC) of Southwestern PA, a Faith in Action program that is part of
Family Services of Western Pennsylvania,
serves greater Pittsburgh's aging population. The mission of IVC
is to maximize the independence and overcome the isolation of the
frail elderly in Allegheny County.
IVC recruits volunteers from the community at large and through
its network of 40 diverse religious congregations throughout Allegheny
County. Volunteers provide critical in-home, non-medical services
that assist frail seniors with the tasks of daily living. IVC
recruits, trains, mobilizes and supports these volunteers and
enables frail older adults to remain independent in their own
homes. Currently, 450+ volunteers are active in the IVC program,
providing service to nearly 1,000 older adults each year.
