Our top needs:
- Funding: Program - Funding for core programs: Most CWC programs are provided to the public at no cost and serve low income families and individuals. Small fees, when there is one, are waived for those who cannot afford to pay.
- Funding: Other - Marketing opportunities: CWC is always seeking means to inform the public about the services we provide. Workplace, civic, and club speaking opportunities, PSA opportunities, and media coverage are equally needed to expand outreach.
- Volunteers - Volunteers: CWC matches all elderly clients and their caregivers one-on-one with a volunteer who provide caregiver respite and/or elderly companionship. Additional volunteers are always needed!
- Funding: Unrestricted - Funding to enable to agency to increase its capacity and effectiveness to serve greater numbers of those in need of CWC support. Funds would be used to retain volunteers with volunteer recognition events and on going training.
- Board Members - CWC has an ongoing need for new, committed and diverse board members from Yolo County.
'Annually, individuals who volunteer as respite providers and visitors contribute about 5,500 hours of service to all of CWC's program service areas. Citizens who Care for the Elderly serves the frail elderly, defined as seniors over 60 years of age experiencing one or more chronic conditions that restrict daily living, and their caregivers where there is one. Seventy five percent of the clients have Alzheimer's or another type of dementia which places particular challenges on caregivers. Clients can be living alone or with a family caregiver. Among those living at home, approximately 70 percent have a family caregiver.'
