Community Volunteer Network (formerly Rogue Valley Manor Community Service)
An estimated 807 RSVP volunteers will serve through the planned activities of this application. They will provide a variety of activities, such as provide medical transportation, respite care, meals, and companionship to the area's frail senior population. They will also assist seniors with issues involving Medicare and issues concerning their health, safety, and well being. Services extended to the youth in the community include mentoring and advocating for them in the court system. The community at large is also served as we will find these volunteers serving with their local police departments. libraries, and providing food to the hungry. This activity will occur at 36 different locations, such as ACCESS, the local Community Action Program, Call-A-Ride medical transportation program, Food and Friends food delivery to seniors, the Medford Police Department, the CASA program, the SMART (Start Making A Reader Today) program, and the S.H.I.B.A. (Senior Health Insurance Benefits Assistance) program. The primary focus area of this project is Healthy Futures. At the end of the thre three -year grant, an estimated 1.974 individuals will be served by RSVP volunteers and will report increased social ties and support. The CNCS federal investment of $53,000 will be supplemented by $168,085.
