Executive Summary

Family Service RSVP has served Champaign, Piatt & Douglas Counties for 40 yrs. An estimated 500 volunteers will serve. They will deliver groceries to chronically hungry low-income seniors; provide emergency food to individuals and families at pantries and soup kitchens; provide transportation to medical appointments and home delivered meals for older adults and/or the disabled; deliver library books, provide food, home repair, yard work, etc to the homebound and frail elderly, provide adult literacy services, serve children in child safety & welfare programs, tutor in K-12 and early childhood education programs, provide tax-aide services to the economically disadvantaged, serve veterans and military families and they will work in hospitals, libraries, museums and non-profit agency offices. Volunteers will serve a network of 80+ stations such as food banks, soup kitchens and food pantries, Meals on Wheels, Faith in Action, transportation programs, AARP Tax-Aide, Project Read, local schools and social service agencies. 249 volunteers will serve in our Primary Focus Area, Healthy Futures. At the end of the 12-month performance period, chronically hungry seniors and economically disadvantaged families will report increased food security; the frail elderly and disabled individuals will continue to live at home and will report increased social ties/perceived social support; low-income tax payers will have increased their knowledge of tax credits and tax law and will have increased comfort levels in filing their own returns; children ages 3-5 will demonstrate gains in school readiness; older students will have improved their academic performance and college readiness, veterans and military families will have received transportation, access to services, comfort and other services; adult learners & ESL learners will have received job skill development services and English skills and to increase their employability. Libraries, hospitals, museums, social service agencies and other non-profits will be better able to serve their clients with the assistance of RSVP volunteers. The CNCS federal investment of $62,306 will be supplemented by $77,940 in state and local support.
