Donations make it possible for Village of the Coastside to further our mission of opportunity, choice support and care for older adults. We plan to expand outreach and capacity for services on the Coastside.
Funds supplement membership fees and help cover operational costs and salary for a part-time administrative assistant who will be hired in 2019. There are over than 10,000 Coastsiders over the age of 50 and this number will continue to grow. We are on the front lines of making sure that aging in place is a viable option. VOTC must expand its membership and build capacity to serve the needs of an increasing number of older adults.
Since its launch in 2016, VOTC has relied on a talented and professional all-volunteer staff for our governance and all operations. We are aware that -- over time -- administrative responsibilities lead to burn out, and divert energy from building new programs. A new part-time administrative assistant will assume some of the day-to-day responsibilities of running our active organization which will free up volunteer time for other pursuits.
Village of the Coastside's success depends on the support of the community.
