RSVP 2014 Competition

Executive Summary

An estimated 599 unduplicated RSVP volunteers will serve in the Weber, Box Elder and Morgan County areas. These volunteers will provide community members who may be struggling to meet their daily needs, opportunities for healthy futures; they will also educate and mentor elementary school age children as well as provide education to protect our environment and the wild life that we cohabitate with. RSVP volunteers will also offer capacity building efforts to local organizations so that together, they may better serve their communities. RSVP volunteers will do this through a variety of volunteer stations such as, senior centers, home health agencies, local food banks and homeless shelters, elementary schools and nature preserves. Some additional volunteer stations will include museums, the local police department, animal shelters and a myriad of community service activities provided through the RSVP office.

The primary focus area of this RSVP project is Healthy Futures. At the end of the three year grant cycle, 140 volunteers will have had the opportunity to serve 200 homebound or limited activity individuals by providing ongoing companionship and transportation to meet their daily needs. They will provide at least 600 individuals opportunities to keep their minds and bodies engaged and active through education and exercise classes, and will provide support to hundreds of struggling families while volunteering with the local homeless shelters and food banks. The CNCS federal investment of $90,564 will be supplemented by Weber Human Services in the amount of $88,366.
