CONTACT Cape-Atlantic provides a FREE "check-in" phone call to the elderly and disabled who are living alone. This call allows them to remain independent in their own home, a goal so many of us share. If a phone call is not answered at the scheduled time, there are procedures each volunteer follows. These procedures have allowed CONTACT Cape-Atlantic to help many people in need.
CONTACT Cape-Atlantic was started to keep in touch with elderly and disabled living alone and to let them know someone cares about them. Now this successful program has grown to help anyone, regardless of age, have contact with another friendly person. Our volunteers help over 200 adults each day stay in their homes independently.
Reassurance Program is funded by The Older Americans Act through Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services.
Social Media Volunteer
Ziggy Cicchella is our June Volunteer of the Month. She is a unique volunteer and helps us from North Jersey. We refer to Ziggy as our Link to the Future. She spreads CONTACT's news through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. She especially likes posting the birthdays of our clients. She tells us, "It is something special. It gives us a chance to give each client their moment, and it is a bit of recognition for them." Ziggy received her bachelor's in social work from Stockton University. While she was a student, she worked in our office. It is so nice that she continues to volunteer now, even from afar. She does an excellent job with sharing all of our news through social media. Congratulations on being selected as our June Volunteer of the Month. Thanks for all that you do. You can read more about Ziggy under the Special Events tab on this website.
