Vivienne's Bio

Vivienne Kurland has been making matches between volunteers and older adults at One Good Deed since 2013. Vivienne helps recruit and manage an average of over 90 volunteers and their older adult matches monthly. Sharon (Program Manager and cofounder of One Good Deed) and Vivienne work very well together visiting older adults in their homes and meeting every potential new volunteer to facilitate and maintain the ongoing matches and make new matches monthly.Since One Good Deed joined JF&CS in 2016, Vivienne has appreciated the value of working closely with the Aviv Team of Clinicians, Case Managers and Social Workers. The collaborative work with the Aviv Team and the support and infrastructure of a large and caring agency, has enabled Vivienne and Sharon to reach a larger service area, making friendly visitor and companion matches that continue to change the quality of life for older adults, their families and the volunteers! “Without the valuable time of our volunteers, we would not be able to impact the lives of the amazing older adults we serve. Some of our volunteers have been with the same OGD friend for over 5-7 years, and feel like family! How lucky am I to be able to make those kinds of connections and hear these stories of friendship and gratitude every day?!”
