LINC provides affordable housing for people underserved by the marketplace. Our communities are known for excellent design, outstanding management and life-enhancing services.</
As a volunteer with LINC you will help low-income residents sustain their physical and mental health while preventing social isolation and depression within this vulnerable population. Residents living on fixed incomes are often forced to choose between paying for housing or nutritious foods, medication and participating in healthy activities. Health & Wellbeing Volunteers at LINC Cares address these issues by providing free supportive programs that improve low-income residents quality of life and promote their ability to live independently.
Volunteers coordinate the following activities:
Exercise - leading stretching classes, walking groups, and other physically engaging programs.
Nutrition - demonstrating healthy recipes while providing educational workshops.
Community engagement - coordinating activities that include: special holiday celebrations, arts & crafts, cognitive and socially active games (e.g., bingo and Wii), computer labs (providing 1-to-1 instruction on basic computer skills), etc.
Health & Wellbeing Volunteers are trained according to LINC Cares program models to coordinate their own assigned activities.
Responsibilities include: outreach, preparation, setting up and cleaning program space, facilitating activities, ensuring the safety of participants, and communicating with property management and resident service staff.
