Build a relationship while helping a senior stay in their own home. Friendly visitor volunteers are needed to regularly stop to see a senior who is frail, home-bound or have no family nearby. They may assist with social activities, transportation, home management, or provide companionship. This is not a medical or caregiver position.
Volunteers are matched with seniors based upon interests, needs, background and personality. They are asked to set aside 2 to 4 hours per week to visit with their senior friend.
Oxnard RSVP's mission is to enrich the lives of people age 55 and over by building a bridge to meaningful volunteer opportunities that use their time and talent in significant service to the community.
RSVP helps answer unmet community needs by matching mature volunteers (ages 55+) with non-profit and public agencies. All work is voluntary and based on the individual's desire to serve.
