The goal of Project LIVE (Living Independently through Volunteer Efforts) is to keep Knox County seniors (age 60+) living in their choice of residence as long as possible. The program’s primary focus is to serve homebound seniors who have limited support systems and who are unable to pay for necessary minor home repairs or safety modifications to be able to stay safely in their own homes.
Project LIVE uses grant money it receives to purchase materials and then uses volunteers who offer their expertise and service to make essential repairs and safety modifications. Volunteers also perform a variety of indoor and outdoor chores for seniors served by Project LIVE.
Project LIVE welcomes individuals or groups to volunteer. Volunteers can set up their own time to assist seniors, depending on their own schedules, including week nights and weekends.
