About The CareGivers, Inc.

About Us

Our History

The CareGivers was founded in 1984 as a national model program to serve the growing needs of the elderly and disabled populations. As such, we were one of 25 programs across the country that was piloted by a three-year grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Since then, hundreds of programs have spread across the country. Upon the start the Statement of Purpose read, "A volunteer coalition whose purpose is to work with and enable persons who are frail, elderly and/or disabled to maintain their independence and dignity." The goal was to match community volunteers to assist our neighbors to remain in their homes for as long as possible with their dignity intact.

In April 1998, we merged with CareGivers of Greater Nashua, an organization that has been around since 1993.

Over the years, our services have increased dramatically. We have expanded services beyond our core programs to include supplemental programs aimed at enhancing the lives of the frail, elderly and disabled. Our innovative programs have allowed tens of thousands to remain independent and lead more fulfilled lives. The one thing that has not changed over the years is that caring volunteers have always been at the heart of our programs. In addition to transportation, friendly visits and reassurance calls, the agency currently sponsors many one day service projects and provides free food packages for low income seniors and disabled individuals.

In 2018, The CareGivers became a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire.
