Mission Statement

The mission of Thames Valley Council of Community Action is to improve the overall well being of individuals and families in need within our service area by fostering self-esteem, respect, independence, growth, self-sufficiency and confidence. Dually, to promote community awareness, input, and ownership of societal problems and provide a broad spectrum of comprehensive, quality services.


Healthy Futures: Aging In Place

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is The AmeriCorps Seniors Program managed by TVCCA. Now, more than ever, community support is so important and impactful. RSVP volunteers offer the support that someone needs to remain living at home; volunteers help with grocery shopping, deliver Meals on Wheels, visiting, phone reassurance, local medical rides, and library book delivery.

RSVP volunteers help host bi-monthly Veteran's Coffeehouses. The Coffeehouse’s mission is "to provide a comfortable location for ALL veterans-both men and women of any age-to meet, socialize, communicate and receive supported information regarding veterans benefits and services through state and federal agencies and programs."

Volunteers who are 55+ are matched with people who are 65+ (or disabled) and independently homebound, at no cost to the person who needs the service.
