  • Our Foster Grandparent Volunteer Program was very recently approved for the opportunity to focus funds towards recruitment costs to gain additional volunteers.

    A part of this re-budget is a contractual position for a part time temporary person to focus on recruitment. This position will be tasked with contacting organizations to implement newspaper advertisements, billboards/bus benches, recruitment events, etc. It will be a rather autonomous and flexible position – we need someone who is a ‘go-getter’ for recruiting.

    I am looking to hopefully have this position handle 30 hours per week at $14 an hour for 7 weeks. My main concern is that the time frame is very tight. Our grant period is completed on June 30th so I need someone to get started as soon as possible!

    Please get in touch if you or someone you know would be interested in this unique opportunity. My email is bsimons@connectionsaaa.org and I can be reached by telephone at 712-328-2540 ext 1031. Click on title for application and more info.

  • Statement by n4a CEO Sandy Markwood

    Today, the U.S. Senate easily approved a House-amended version of S. 192, the Older Americans Act Reauthorization Act of 2015, expressing Congress’s strong support for the vital home and community-based services that the Older Americans Act (OAA) authorizes and funds in communities across the nation. This action means that the bill has passed both chambers and will be sent soon to the President for his signature. To read more, click on the title.
