How Can I Get Involved?


RSVP today! Good things will happen!

RSVP 55+ Volunteer Program of Boone and Greene Counties:

RSVP recruits individuals ages 55 and older to meet community needs through volunteerism.  In order to continue our efforts, we are searching for the time, services, and talents of volunteers.  RSVP helps to match individuals with the best possible volunteer opportunity that fits their schedule, respects their personal preferences, and provides a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

 Projects of RSVP in Boone and Greene Counties:

 RSVP In - Home Friendly Visitation

In-Home visitation is a connection for the socially isolated older adults living alone or who are alone during the day.  Visiting volunteers are a link to the community by providing companionship and helping individuals maintain independence by being socially connected.

RSVP Adult Caregiver Respite Program of Boone County

The free RSVP Adult Caregiver Respite Program is available to a Boone County resident caring for an adult 25 years and older.  Volunteers will provide respite 2 to 4 hours a week, bi-weekly, or monthly giving the caregiver time away from caregiver duties.

GAP (Grocery Assistance-shopping Program)

GAP is a service for persons 60 and older unable to get groceries on their own, from store to kitchen.
