The McGrath family, of South Burlington, and the employees at the Rotisserie Restaurant in South Burlington have been fundraising on behalf of HomeShare Vermont for several years and have raised over $50,000 for the non-profit.
“Without strong support from the business community and businesses like the Rotisserie, we couldn’t have served the nearly 900 people who came though our door this past year,” said HomeShare Vermont Board President Dan Stanyon.
HomeShare Vermont is a local non-profit celebrating 30 years of service to our community. They help seniors and persons with disabilities stay at home. They do that by offering two distinct programs: Homesharing and Caregiving. In Homesharing someone moves in and provides an average of 8-10 hours/week of service in exchange for a low cost place to live. In this way its helps two people at once-it helps someone find a great place to live that they can afford while that person also helps someone be able to stay in their home. They also have a Caregiving Program, where you can hire caregivers to come and work for you. In both programs HomeShare Vermont provides an in-depth screening and matching service.
HomeShare Vermont was started 30 years ago by volunteers through the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and volunteers continue to play a vital role in the service delivery and management of the organization.
