At Spectrum Generations, it is a part of our company mission to always provide solutions to help each and every one of our clients improve their quality of life. As an agency run by a CEO who is a retired Captain of the United States Navy, our Legacy Corps program is of high quality and is a high priority for our agency.

What is Legacy Corps?

Legacy Corps is a national AmeriCorps project that operates in 9 states at 16 project sites providing companionship respite for veterans of all ages, military families, and their caregivers. Our volunteers are trained and carefully matched with each client they work with. Our member volunteers will provide: 

  • 8-10 hours of caregiver support services per week to veterans and/or military family members who are providing care for a family member
  • One year of services totaling 450 hours per year of service for a minimum of four hours weekly respite
  • Specialized training on topics that are unique to your family’s individual needs
  • Access to local resources and support for the caregiver and family members

Spectrum Generations' Legacy Corps Program can assist those caring for someone 18 years of age or older, and isn't limited to only supporting the aging community. According to the PEW Research Center on post-9/11 veterans:

  • 44% say it was difficult to readjust to civilian life
  • 47% say they have had frequent outbursts of anger
  • 32% said there were times they didn't care about anything
  • 37% say they felt they had PTSD, regardless of whether or not they were diagnosed with it.

As a Legacy Corps client our goal is to provide you with support for you and your family, to decrease feelings of burden and stress, and to increase the potential of your loved one remaining safely at home.
