BCO Bristol RSVP will work with 293 unduplicated volunteers who will serve in 57 volunteer stations with a primary focus on Healthy Futures for community members who are disabled, aging or indigent. Currently, BCO Bristol RSVP has 102 volunteers who work in the Healthy Futures focus area. RSVP staff will work to develop the appropriate data instruements to document the outputs for improving access to care; aging in place; and access to healthy, sufficient food supply. Volunteers will work with hospitals, will deliver meals, will assist with therapeutic horseback riding, and will work in emergency food sites such as soup kitchens as well as helping out at food pantries. BCO Bristol RSVP volunteers will serve in four communities - Bristol, Burlington, Plainville and Plymouth CT - that are demographically and geographically diverse.
