Resources for Seniors works closely with many other agencies and businesses serving older adults in Wake County.
Resources for Seniors receives part of our funding from the United Way of the Greater Triangle, which also provides support for a wide variety of other nonprofit agencies in the area.
From its inception, RFS has provided leadership and support for the GOLD Coalition, a public-private working group founded to guide and monitor the implementation of the Wake County Aging Plan. Learn more about the Coalition and the Plan at the GOLD Coalition website.
Center for Volunteer Caregiving
This nonprofit agency works with RFS to provide the Telecare and Friendly Visitor programs, and also provides a myriad of other volunteer-driven services, from Alzheimer respite care to transportation to yardwork. They also administer Family Caregiver Support Program funds to provide volunteer-based respite services to caregivers. CVC works with churches and community organizations to recruit and train volunteers, but individual volunteers are also welcome! Volunteers are matched with seniors who need what they have to offer.
In addition to these major partners, RFS is part of the network of aging services providers in Wake County, and counts on many other entities for collaborative efforts to serve seniors.
