All of us at Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition believe in respect and dignity for all stages of life, and we focus our work on assisting the elderly to assure they are engaged and valued.
We do this by supporting and enhancing an individual’s potential as they face mobility challenges due to health conditions, disability or advanced age.
We deliver access to healthcare services by providing accessible transportation here in the Verde Valley and to healthcare services located in Flagstaff, Prescott and the Phoenix metro area. Our volunteers and our accessible van provide over 30,000 trips each year. Our services support social engagement and interaction with all ages.
Volunteers join VVCC to provide rides, in-home visitation and other services totaling more than 50,000 services annually. Our board of directors, volunteers and staff believe in the generosity of the human spirit. We serve with respect and compassion for all who need our help.
Verde Valley Caregivers diligently operates with integrity and transparency. We provide our services to 2,000 individuals in need with no charge. Support for VVCC comes from generous individuals who value our mission and from foundations and local governments who recognize the vital difference our services make.
I welcome you to get to know us by joining our family of donors and/or considering joining our team of volunteers!
