Executive Summary

An estimated 440 ADVOCAP Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) volunteers will address community needs in Fond du Lac, Green Lake and Winnebago Counties in East Central Wisconsin. The primary focus area of this project is Healthy Futures. Some of their activities will include packaging and delivering meals to individuals over age 65, providing companionship visits to individuals over age 65, serving at local food pantries and distributing information on health. Other activities will include tutoring children and building homes through Habitat for Humanity. At the end of the three-year grant, 364 individuals over age 65 who received at least 10 home delivered meals packaged or delivered by an RSVP volunteer will report having increased social ties/perceived social support. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) investment of $179,954 will be supplemented by $78,223 in non-federal resources for a total budget of $258,177, exceeding the 30% match requirement.
