Our seniors have life experiences and stories in their memory bank that are worth preserving for generations to come. VON will provide storytelling volunteers with a set of questions. They meet with a client once a week for eight to ten weeks asking questions and recording the answers. They will then compile the questions and answers into a binder to present to the client. Resources and training are provided.
Members of the Foundation Board provide strategic leadership to VON by committing to excellence in advocacy and supporting VON to achieve its important vision and mission. Board members oversee the VON Foundation, participate in fund-raising events and work to increase the visibility and knowledge of VON in the community.
