Island Volunteer Caregivers

Island Volunteer Caregivers (IVC) has been serving Bainbridge Island and its neighboring communities since 1996. Dedicated to supporting independence, IVC provides free assistance to older adults, individuals with disabilities, caregivers, and those facing adversity. Through a network of over 300 volunteers, IVC matches individuals with volunteers who assist with daily tasks. Essential services include transportation, errands, shopping, grocery and prescription pickups, respite, companionship, and emotional support through grief and caregiver support groups. Life enrichment activities such as walking groups and field trips further enhance well-being. We look forward to delivering hundreds of donated homegrown bouquets every summer through our annual Flowers From the Heart program—and keeping our neighbor-to-neighbor connections blossoming through helping hands and open hearts. Whether as a volunteer or care receiver, we invite you to join us in our mission to create a community where compassion thrives and connections uplift us all.
