The mission of Old Colony Elder Services (OCES) is to support the independence and dignity of elders and individuals with disabilities by providing essential information and services that promote healthy and safe living. OCES has a variety of volunteer programs including the Nutrition Program, Money Management Program, and RSVP of Plymouth County.
OCES' Nutrition Program is there to reduce hunger and food insecurity, promote socialization, and to promote the health and well-being of older adults and individuals with disabilities.
OCES' Money Management Program (MMP) helps older adults and individuals with disabilities in helping to manage their finances and pay their bills. The MMP program provides confidential assistance in managing a budget and keeping finances organized.
RSVP of Plymouth County (RSVP), a program of OCES, is the Plymouth County chapter AmeriCorps Seniors. RSVP works with our service partners by utilizing the financial, infrastructure and human resources of RSVP. We recruit and interview volunteers age 55 and older, and align their abilities and interests to meet the needs of the community as provided by the service partners.
