Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something.

VACA, Inc.  helps incapacitated adults and senior citizens in Southern Indiana by acting as guardian, supported decision-maker and advocate. Many of our clients have no one to give them advice or have family that is unable to help. We can help give peace of mind. VACA, Inc. serves as court appointed legal guardian to help make decisions for the incapacitated individual regarding quality healthcare, finances and day-to-day living.

Our Mission

VACA, Inc. is a public benefit program founded to empower seniors and adults with disabilities to realize better personal and social outcomes through our guardianship program.

Our Vision

At VACA, Inc., we want to ensure the people in our program can continue to live as safely and independently, as possible. With the help from community donations and compassionate volunteers we will be able to provide the peace of mind to our clients with overseeing quality healthcare and finances.

Become A Volunteer

Our volunteers are the most important piece of our mission. They are our eyes and ears at the ground level to ensure our in-need individuals are getting quality care while also providing companionship. Volunteer with us and change a life today!

Our Programs

Volunteer Advocacy

Our volunteers are assigned a specific person to visit with on weekly to bi-weekly basis to provide companionship, as well as to monitor health, mood and medication changes to help us make better healthcare decisions.

Family Guardianship Training

Becoming a guardian for a family member can be an arduous task when you aren't sure of your role. We can help you through our training program to ensure you know the laws and expectations surrounding your duties.

Adult Guardianships

When a person can no longer make healthy decisions for themselves, we provide guardianship services to help the person navigate the system and to provide better outcomes.

Adopt a Grandparent

This program is for our anyone under the age of 21 that wants to serve the community by providing companionship to the elderly. Similar to our Volunteer Advocates, they will visit with an assigned person regularly.
