Winterhaven is part of a coalition of central neighborhoods that train volunteers to provide a variety of assistance to seniors still living independently in their homes. The initial funding for this program came from a grant from the Southern Arizona Compassion Initiative through the Pima Council on Aging and the United Way. Recently United Way reported that the Lend A Hand Program is a model program for senior assistance in Tucson! Lend A Hand provides a variety of services such as errands, dog walking, friendly visits, house and yard work, and caregiver relief. In the first year of the program, seven Winterhaven seniors were assisted in a variety of ways. To support this program, please consider volunteering a few hours a month to assist a Winterhaven senior. If you are interested in volunteering, visit their website at www.lahseniorhelp.org.
