INCA RSVP will serve an estimated 160 RSVP volunteers will serve. They will work with the local fire departments setting up and staffing call centers, providing health/first aid services, creating disaster kits, distributing meals, and other services that are needed. The RSVP volunteers will serve at the local nutrition sites by delivering food and providing companion ship to the elderly and disabled who come there to eat. They will also distribute information about health care at the local hospitals. In addition to all that, the RSVP volunteers provide after school tutoring two days a week for students who are struggling in math and reading. Last on the list are the RSVP volunteers who do not do their volunteer work at any particular site but take care of the elderly in their communities, helping them continue to live independently and in their own homes. These RSVP volunteers serve 21 fire stations, 13 nutrition sites, 3 local hospitals, 1 middle school, and 2 independent sites. The types of organizations the RSVP volunteers serve are emergency management, nutrition sites, local hospitals, and public schools. The primary focus area of this project is Disaster Services. At the end of the 12-month performance period, the local fire departments will have many RSVP volunteers responding to their needs through emergency management, elderly and disabled will receive food and companionship supplied by the RSVP volunteers. Hospitals will be able to inform the public of health care information, and students will have received tutoring in math and reading that will help them be successful the following year. The CNCS federal investment of $27,894 will be supplemented by $32,435.00 for the State, $6000.00 from United Way and $15.441.00 in local money.
