Fort Wayne Volunteers

 

2010-06-21-VolunteersHealthVisions Fort Wayne volunteers are the lifeline to several programs and services offered to the poor and underserved in the community. We have approximately one hundred volunteers that provide services for all our programs.

 

We use volunteers in the Prevention Clinic as certified medical translators to the Latino Population. We also have volunteers in the Self- Management of Diabetes Program. These volunteers are certified Community Health Workers who provide diabetes education, support, advice and guidance to participants for the self management of diabetes.

In our Faith In Action Program we have seven church congregations that provide a volunteer coordinator and volunteers to give supportive care services to seniors and individuals that are disabled, suffering from long-term disabilities and home bound. These services include telephone reassurance, light house work, friendly visits, yard work, shopping and reading.

HealthVisions Fort Wayne salutes our volunteers. God bless each and every one of the volunteers and their families. Renetta Williams
