Local Advocates Looking to Help Seniors

 

COWICHAN - There are many new faces are around the board table at the Cowichan Seniors Community Foundation.  "We are really lucky to have a full compliment at a time when board members are a real challenge to recruit," says Cindy Schiller, Chair of the Foundation‘s ten member board. "We were fortunate to attract six new, well qualified and skilled members from our membership, volunteer roster, senior community and business community."

The board provides oversight and strategic direction for the organization.  Schiller says, "Over the next few months we'll be consulting with community partners, talking with our senior clients and reviewing the myriad of literature already researched in the Cowichan Region so that we can determine our priorities and ensure they meet the needs of seniors."

"We are somewhat different from a traditional foundation in that we not only advocate and raise funds for programs but we also deliver programs," says Schiller.  The Cowichan Seniors Community Foundation is a not for profit, charitable organization that advocates for seniors programs and services in the Cowichan Region.  As well, the Foundation delivers the Supported Transportation Program, providing seniors with rides to and from medical appointments; Meals on Wheels in the Duncan area; has published a paper Seniors Directory and online version of resources for seniors, and is actively promoting a healthy active lifestyle through the Brain Fitness Program.

Client intake and volunteer recruitment for all programs is continuous throughout the year and those wishing more information may contact Vicki Holman, Executive Director, at
