While RSVP used to coordinate volunteers of all ages, their current grant is specifically for those 55 and older that want to get out and help others. "Depression can really set in if you're sitting in your house day, after day, after day. So when we give them a volunteer assignment that gets them out of the house, and that keeps them healthier longer," said Mary Siverson, RSVP Western North Dakota coordinator. They do hope to expand services soon to be able to coordinate all ages of volunteers once more. "Volunteers are such an integral part of what we do, without them we couldn't be successful at all. So we are really excited to have RSVP back in the picture. They're a great resource for us," said Lafferty.
