About

Mentors help recently arrived refugees become acquainted with the surrounding community and face the challenges of resettling in a new country. This is a critical period when refugees need assistance learning the basics of life in a new place, including things like public transportation, the banking system, public schools, managing personal healthcare, conversational English and getting involved in their community. Mentors meet with an individual or a family for two hours per week during the first three months in the U.S.

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Solid Ground meets critical community needs in King County by encouraging and supporting volunteering for people 55 and older. RSVP is part of Senior Corps, a federally funded national service program. RSVP makes volunteering easy and rewarding by finding volunteer positions for people 55 and older and providing ongoing support during their service. Contact us to learn about our member benefits and to help you find the right volunteer job opportunity.
