Welcome to Viste
Volunteers in Service to the Elderly (VISTE) is a community-based, non-profit organization serving Lakeland, Bartow, Mulberry and Ft. Meade. Established in 1983, the primary goal of VISTE is to enable frail elderly persons to continue living independently and safely in their own home. Learn more about us or get in touch if you want to volunteer.
VISTE is a volunteer-driven organization that is successful because of the schools, churches, civic groups, local corporations, and individuals that help us. Though a small VISTE staff oversees program services offered to our clients, our dedicated volunteers perform the majority of the work.
The frail elderly are the fastest growing age group in the U.S.A. People are living longer and are often financially unprepared to do so. On a fixed income, we provide the elderly with food and other resources. VISTE is here to help.
VISTE receives funds from the United Way of Central Florida, the City of Lakeland, the City of Bartow, the Community Foundation of Greater Lakeland, through individuals, businesses, and various foundations.
