39% of Chincoteague’s population is age 60 or above, yet we no longer receive any senior programming from Accomack County. While local churches, food banks, and organizations do all they can, it is not enough to cover all the needs. Volunteer to help address the gaps in services for our seniors.
Chincoteague is filled with wonderful people you may not have met yet! Get to know your neighbors (not always “next door” anymore, with so many rental houses now) who need a little help to age in place. Share in their history and life experience. Make new friends with members and other volunteers. Folks in other Villages we’ve talked with say these genuine connections are the biggest reward of volunteering.
Village Neighbors volunteers receive some initial training as well as ongoing support. Periodic sessions include guest experts who discuss issues related to aging. Both members and volunteers provide feedback on their experiences, so everyone learns and grows.
Village Neighbors is a program of Island Community House a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2019.
