Interlakes Community Caregivers was founded in 1998 as an outreach program of the Center Harbor Congregational Church in Center Harbor, New Hampshire. The first group of 25 volunteers included six who served as coordinators. Working from their homes, these coordinators received requests from neighbors and contacted the volunteers who provided services for these neighbors.
In 1999, grants were received from The United Church of Christ and the Lakes Region Charitable Trust. Volunteers were recruited and an office was set up in the church, where it remained until 2003 when the first annual appeal for funds was made. Caregivers incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in January 2004. In 2012, Caregivers added the town of Sandwich to the communities it serves.
An nine-member Board of Directors governs the organization and offices and staff are now located in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.
