Nav-CARE Program

Nav-CARE stands for Navigating, Connecting, Accessing, Resourcing and Engaging. But really it means helping someone.

For three years Kristy Wells and Trudy Lamoriss have spent time visiting with each other, chatting on the phone, going outside for a visit or just hanging out.

“I connected with Trudy. She is a friend now,” said Kristy, a hospice volunteer.

The goal of the program is to improve the quality of life of those with advanced chronic illness by relieving loneliness, isolation and anxiety, by providing someone to be a sounding board.

For Trudy, whose disability makes it difficult to get outside, Kristy’s visits have been a bright spot in the week. 

“When I see Kristy, it fills up my day. She is a bright spot,” said Trudy, who gets help with paperwork, shopping and sometimes laundry from Kristy.

Our volunteers can help an individual by buying groceries, playing scrabble, going out for walks, helping connect with local support programs, or whatever is needed.

Feel free to call our office at 780-608-0636 to find out more about our programs or click on the link to read about our programs. These are free services, but we continue to operate through donations. Even a small donation can help us help others.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Flagstaff County

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Flagstaff County (DPIL Flagstaff County) will receive 20% of ticket sales from this event to provide books to children under five in Flagstaff
County. It costs about $43.00 to gift one child a new book each month for a year.

In March 2020, three community minded women looked to share their dedication to inspiring a love of reading by gifting books. Their journey culminated in January 2021,
when through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, they started gifting books free of charge to children in Flagstaff County from birth to age five. Reaching out to local
community partners – individuals, businesses, and service groups they have kept books flowing to mailboxes every month since then.

There are 246 children in Flagstaff County now receiving a book every month and over 3,500 books have been gifted through their program.

The children are excited to go to the box office or open their mailbox, they are excited about reading!

Dolly Parton Imagination Library serves Canada, United States, Ireland, Australia, and the UK. To date over 188,754,500 books have been gifted to children under five in these countries. The Dolly Parton Foundation sources new, age-appropriate books to mail to children registered in the area at no cost to the family. DPIL Flagstaff County pays about $3.55 for each book gifted. With current registrations, about $12,000 needs to be raised each year. The amazing Flagstaff County community has generously supported this
reading and literacy program.
