RSVP 2014 Competition

Executive Summary

An estimated 200 RSVP volunteers will serve. Some of their activities will include providing companionship and transportation to adults with disabilities and seniors; tutoring K-12 students; providing food resources to the hungry; and training and managing volunteers. The primary focus area of this project is Healthy Futures. At the end of the three-year grant, 70 older adults, and adults with disabilities will receive companionship or transportation services; 60 of these clients will report that thanks to the service of RSVP volunteers, they have increased social ties and social support. In addition to these outcomes, over 2,000 individuals will receive emergency food from food banks and other organizations and 35 veterans will receive the transportation services they need. 40 students will complete tutoring programs and 60 volunteers will be recruited and trained. The CNCS federal investment of $57,952 will be supplemented by $ 24,764 of state and local funding.
