The purpose of this project was to write a grant to expand social support services for homebound elderly in Santa Rosa, California. This program would expand the number of volunteers providing home visits through the Friendly Visitor program at the Council on Aging-Services for Seniors. The justification for this grant proposal was based on data showing the need for increased programs to reach the dramatically growing number of isolated seniors in Sonoma County. The social support provided by such programs has been shown to reduce depression, and isolation.
The proposed program's objectives would be to increase the number of volunteers recruited from collaborating schools and agencies, expand the number of visits provided to homebound elderly persons, promote referrals to community resources, and build community awareness about the growing need for services to support this population.
The potential funding source chosen was the California Wellness Foundation.
