Your Point of View Matters.

Vintage House has begun a planning process to evaluate our services. We have engaged the consulting firm Sutherland Strategies to help guide us through this work. Sutherland Strategies specializes in strategic planning with nonprofits and foundations, and we are excited to have this kind of expertise on board. To inform our planning, we are holding a round of focus groups to gain the community’s views and perceptions about Vintage House. The focus groups will all be virtual via a Zoom link, and will be led by Christina Sutherland Mockler, Principal with Sutherland Strategies. The focus groups will last approximately 90 minutes and will be entirely confidential. Our consulting team will be preparing a thematic summary of the focus groups which will include quotes from participants or examples that they offer, but comments will not be attributed to any particular participant. These groups will focus on a small handful of questions that you will receive when the focus group begins; there is no preparation necessary.

The need for vital services persists

One Year Later ... we’re still boxing up meals and soups, dropping off bags of groceries, and calling isolated seniors every week. And as vaccinations for COVID-19 ramp up in our community, we're bridging the technological divide to help seniors access online vaccination appointment sites and providing rides at no cost to drive-thru clinics. A gift from you helps give immediate access to these vital services to our most vulnerable elders. Please donate as generously as you can today.
