Senior Living (RSVP)


The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program helps individuals age 55 and older put their skills and life experience to work for their communities.

RSVP volunteers serve from a few hours to forty hours a week. They do a lot within our community helping Non-profits, private, public community organizations and assisting many other great projects. However they choose to serve, RSVP volunteers meet community needs and make a lasting difference. RSVP promotes the engagement of older persons as community resources in planning for community improvement and delivering volunteer services.

Why Volunteer?

RSVP members make a difference in the lives of those in need. With each new experience, volunteers meet new people and work to solve new problems, creating solutions that benefit everyone. Living a satisfying and fulfilling life means helping others, staying involved, giving back to the community and having fun. RSVP offers the chance to do all of these!

RSVP is a completely FREE program. You are not expected to buy uniforms, nor do you obtain any kind of obligation whatsoever. The program allows you to choose when and where you volunteer. Furthermore, you will receive free volunteer placement and supplemental accident and liability insurance (when you are on your way to volunteer, during your volunteer time, and on your way home).

Benefits to becoming a volunteer
  • Supplemental accident and liability insurance
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference
  • Optional mileage reimbursement
  • Annual Appreciation/Recognition Luncheon
  • Volunteer Insurance Service provided by CIMA
