Greenbelt Intergenerational
Volunteer Exchange Service


Mission of GIVES

The goal of Greenbelt Intergenerational Volunteer Exchange Service is to assist the frail and disabled, regardless of age, as well as the elderly, to remain independent until they are no longer able to function safely alone.
