RSVP Center of Essex and Hudson Counties is a comprehensive community service organization sponsored by JFS MetroWest designed to mobilize members of the community who are 55+ to give back to their own neighborhoods in Essex and Hudson counties through volunteer services.
For potential volunteers, RSVP Center of Essex and Hudson Counties provides a single location where they can review a number of local volunteer opportunities and receive the help of a trained Volunteer Coordinator. This assistance ensures that volunteers are placed in a position that matches their skills, desired time commitment and interests.
RSVP has a need throughout Essex County for Senior Companion Volunteers. Each volunteer is matched one-on-one with a homebound senior living in their own home or a managed care facility. Volunteers visit the same senior once a week or once every other week for an hour. Volunteer provide companionship, friendship and a listening ear to someone who is often isolated and overlooked. Senior Companions make a real difference in the lives of the people they visit.
