Looking for an in-person volunteer opportunity? Volunteer as a Friendly Visitor with the Clintonville-Beechwold Resources Center (CRC). Provide socialization and reduce loneliness for seniors who request additional support through in-person visits with a senior in their home. Lend your active listening, and friendly conversation skills and brighten the day of an isolated senior. Find a schedule that works for you and your senior, agree on and commit to a visiting schedule that works for everyone.
To volunteer as a Friendly Visitor, join the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) a volunteer program exclusive to Ohio residents in Franklin County, ages 55 years and older. We match volunteers ages 55+ with nonprofits in their community that either need or rely on volunteers to be able to provide their services. Funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and part of AmeriCorps Seniors, VANTAGE Aging’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 years and over. We partner with nonprofit agencies to match these older adults to their volunteer opportunities. RSVP projects link the skills of the volunteers with the identified needs of the community. We think of ourselves as the 'center hub' for our volunteers looking for opportunities. We offer many wonderful incentives and perks to our team of RSVP volunteers, this program is free and so rewarding to be a part of.
