Listening to Carolyn Williams speak of her appreciation for Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE) is nothing short of refreshing. VISTE, a United Way partner, was able to help her in a time of great need and she will tell you that she never takes VISTE for granted.
Shortly after Carolyn had heart surgery her home's air conditioner went down. Her house was so hot that she was sleeping outside.
Carolyn’s sister, a VISTE client, told her that the agency might be able to help. Carolyn visited the agency’s office and shared her situation with a staff member who didn’t hesitate to send repairmen out to fix her air conditioning unit. She was able to sleep in her home again with the proper cooling.
When asked what VISTE meant to her, Carolyn responded, “It’s like a light hand coming to me out of the darkness and giving me comfort. That’s what VISTE is, comfort to the elderly. It’s more than a bag of groceries, it’s comfort.”
