The U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL) made Community Care Corps funds available to organizations across the country to develop innovative models that assists adults 60 years of age or older, adults with disabilites, and their caregivers with non-medical activities such as chores, errands and other daily activities.
Greenbrier Community Care Corps believes this program will help ease social isolation of seniors and individuals with a disability, promote independent living, build a stronger community, relieve over-burdened family caregivers and develop a local model to connect volunteers with those who need support.
