Legacy Corps for Veterans and Military Families

Project: Research project

Description

Legacy Corps for Veteran and Military Families (LCVMF) at Arizona State Universitys College of Public Service and Community Solutions proposes to have 542 quarter-time AmeriCorps members who will provide caregiver support services to veteran and military families at 15 subaward sites in ten (10) states. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for: a) participating veterans and family members having significantly increased their commitment to their communities; and b) providing 280,800 hours of respite and other support services to 703 veterans or family members, thus decreasing caregiver burden and stress, enabling families to remain in communities, and postponing or avoiding institutional care. Further, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 410 volunteers who will be engaged in outreach, caregiver support and food drives. This program focuses on the CNCS focus area of veterans and military families. The CNCS investment of $2,001,265 will be matched with $1,298,147: $588,996 in public funding and $709,151 in private funding.
