Our History


VISTE was founded in 1983 by a dozen or so volunteers who saw a need in their community. VISTE’s original program – transportation – is still our largest program, serving close to 1,000 clients with rides to the doctor, grocery store, and wherever else that may need to go. VISTE drivers and volunteers make over 900 trips each month.

Thirty years ago, VISTE had a little more than 30 clients, and now VISTE serves close to 4,000 clients. This population continues to grow, and their needs continue to become more costly as they age in place. VISTE counts on the community to address this ever-expanding need.




VISTE’s mission is to enable the frail elderly to remain safely and independently in their own homes.

The needs are great, but together we are greater than the need.
