SERVICE STRATEGY
VerdeCares service strategy is to provide non-medical care and support, through a team of volunteers, that gives our neighbors in-need access to the services and activities that promote physical, mental and emotional health.  The organization does not discriminate on basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, national origin, disabilities, sexual orientation or financial status.
We serve the homebound, those who can no longer drive due to age, disability, or disease and those recovering from illness or surgery.
There is no financial eligibility.
