Spectrum Generations' Veterans Program Receives National Recognition Home Office

Spectrum Generations’ Legacy Corps Program, which caters to the caregiving needs of veterans and their families, recently received two national awards. Bestowed by the University of Maryland, the awards are a direct reflection of the efforts made to grow the program and enhance people’s lives through the support it offers.

The Eisenhower Award was presented to Spectrum Generations as a symbol of our leadership in modeling how to retain members. The Startup Award was presented in recognition of demonstrated growth of the program through both volunteers and families seeking services, year over year. The two awards were out of only four presented, nationwide.

Legacy Corps is a national AmeriCorps project that operates in 9 states at 16 project sites. At Spectrum Generations, the Legacy Corps program provides companionship respite care for veteran and military families and their caregivers, throughout central and midcoast Maine. The volunteers are trained and carefully matched with each client they work with to help support the specific needs veterans and military families often face, as well as decrease feelings of burden and stress for caregivers when caring for a loved one.

Veterans of any age, and their families members are welcome to contact Spectrum Generations' Tricia Payson at 620-1670 for more information on how to begin services. Volunteers for the program are also needed and invited to contact Betty LaBua at 620-1662 for more information on upcoming training opportunities.
