  • Transportation to and from work
  • Retreats and workshops
  • $100.00 monthly stipend for each Volunteer
  • $5,000 Education Award upon completion of the program to help offset education loans or for future education costs
You can support us at the following levels:
  • FCV Star: $100 a month
  • FCV Sustainer: $50 a month 
  • FCV Supporter: $25 a month

Each volunteer is paired with a couple or an individual in the community. Companions help the volunteers feel welcomed in the area with particular attention to those who live far from their families. These partnerships are mutually enriching.
