The Arc of Texas + RSVP is searching for individuals ages 55+ who are eager to share their experience and expertise with members of their community with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD).

Volunteers can choose how they'd like to provide support:

  • Social Companionship & Community Engagement: Volunteer doing what you love, sharing a special skill or a favorite pastime with one of your neighbors with I/DD. Activities can range from a bowling league to teaching a cooking class to grabbing a cup of coffee.
  • Life Skills Development: Activities can include teaching a healthy cooking class, leading a curriculum on financial literacy or healthy relationships, and more
  • Safe & Healthy Homes: Provide support helping an individual gain or maintain their independence. Everyone's needs are different, activities could include kitchen safety, nutrition, safe organization, etc.
  • Transportation Support: Love driving? Give someone a ride to work, or a doctor appointment, or the movies! Sometimes the key to community engagement is just getting to the community.
