The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is a federal program administered by the Corporation of National and Community Service under the umbrella of Senior Corp. RSVP, one of the largest volunteer efforts in the nation, has matched local problems with older adults who are willing to help since 1971. RSVP is designed to provide individuals 55 years and better with the opportunity to share their abilities, interests, and experience with their communities. RSVP volunteers are eligible to receive accident, personal liability, and excess automobile insurance, as well as community recognition.
Locally, RSVP is sponsored by the Allegany County Human Resource Development Commission, Inc. (HRDC). HRDC is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of the people it serves. It is HRDC’s mission to eliminate social and economic barriers to promote individual and community stability through services, advocacy and collaboration. RSVP and HRDC are a perfect fit as both strive to address community needs through community resources.
