Supporting Our Senior Neighbors
Volunteer Aging Council
The Volunteer Aging Council is a non-profit organization established in 2000 by volunteers who raise money and awareness for the needs of low-income seniors and senior veterans in Cherokee County.
Our mission is to address Cherokee County seniors’ unmet needs by obtaining resources from the community through fundraising, grants, and hands-on volunteerism.
Ensure safety, security, shelter, and sustenance for our low-income Cherokee County seniors
Founded in 2000, the Volunteer Aging Council (VAC) works hand in hand with Cherokee County Senior Services and to identify those senior citizens and aging veterans in need.
How we Help
Donations have allowed the VAC to sponsor other programs such as the “Last Stop”. This program offers limited financial assistance to seniors and elderly veterans when other options are not available. VAC will pay the bills directly for rent, utilities, pharmaceuticals, and temporary housing due to homelessness.
In addition, we have safety programs for purchasing extension grabbers, shower chairs, and installing enhanced safety features such as ramps and bathtub/shower grab bars.
