Volunteering for SGSM Network as an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) has been an amazing experience so far. The organization's values, vision, and mission all focus on keeping older adults happy, healthy, and living safely in their homes for as long as possible . The employees and volunteers that staff SGSM Network, both inside and outside of the central office, are kind, warm-hearted, selfless people who do what they do to help improve the lives of older adults in the St. Louis area. Everyone who works for SGSM Network is extremely passionate about what they do. It has been an honor to work for this organization for the time that I have, and I look forward to continuing to improve the lives of older adults for the remainder of my term as a VISTA.

I'm currently a VISTA volunteer at SGSM Network. SGSM Network is a network of churches working collaboratively to meet the needs of the older adults in our neighborhoods.

Our goal is to create a local community response to the needs of older adults living in our neighborhoods. We do this by providing fill in the gap services - simple things that many older adults simply cannot afford and/or do not have support around them to do. We provide minor home repair, yard work, transportation, socialization and health promotion activities and services to and by older adults in the St. Louis area.
