Whom We Serve
The Volunteer Advocates for Seniors and Disabled Adults Program provides volunteer limited guardian services for elderly, mentally ill, and intellectual/developmentally disabled individuals 18 years and older who are in nursing homes, group homes, and supported living homes in Wayne, Union, and Fayette Counties. The at-risk individuals served by Achieva's Volunteer Guardianship Program are incapable of representing or protecting their own best interest and are without family or guardian involvement to help them make decisions.
How We Serve
Achieva Resources advocates for seniors and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We provide guardianship services to individuals who are not able to make medical or advocacy decisions for themselves. Achieva resources has been able to help over 30 individuals in need of medical, advocacy, health and safety services, and guardianships.
Prior to beginning training, volunteers in the VAS Program are required to complete an application process that includes providing three written references; authorizations for release of criminal, driving, and social services histories; and participating in a personal screening interview with the program coordinator.
The Volunteer Advocates for Seniors (VAS) and Disabled Adults Program began in 2013 as an effort to address the health care and social services needs the ever increasing population of seniors and intellectually/developmentally disabled individuals living in Wayne, Union, and Fayette Counties.
This sweet little boy isn't just a student that attends the school I work for. He shows me everyday what life is really about. He is full of happiness, peace and love. I melt every time I see that beautiful smile of his. When I see him smile, I know it's been a successful day. He is a true angel.
