The Senior Companion Program pairs healthy older adults with frail senior citizens and adults with disabilities to decrease isolation and loneliness with a weekly visit from a caring volunteer. A Senior Companion volunteer provides support through assistance with grocery shopping, errands, doctor appointments, respite care and companionship necessary to maintain independence.
Common Ground Outdoor Adventures' mission is to provide life-enhancing outdoor recreational opportunities for youth and adults with disabilities. We provide adaptive equipment and support, which enable people with disabilities to participate in outdoor recreation alongside their peers. These experiences reduce stereotypes, raise awareness, and empower people to realize their full potential. Our trips are not only accessible physically but also financially.
CAPSA is a non-profit domestic violence, sexual abuse, and rape recovery center serving Cache County and the Bear Lake area. We provide support services for women, men, and children impacted by abuse. All of our services are FREE and confidential.
At our meeting, we voted for the Bear River Senior Companion Program! If you were unable to attend, send us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the address of where to send your check. Thanks!!
