To improve the quality of life for persons living in long-term care facilities throughout Marin County by providing volunteer visitors. LITA promotes friendships that lessen isolation and loneliness, and increase public awareness of the needs of residents of long-term care facilities.
California Volunteers Service Enterprise
In 2013, LITA was named a California Volunteers Service Enterprise (CVSE). A Service Enterprise is an organization that leverages volunteers and their skills across all leadership levels, and in all departments, to successfully deliver on the social mission of the organization. While nonprofits continue to face an environment of doing more with less, the most successful organizations excel in volunteer engagement practices that lead to greater organizational capacity and community impact.
