RSVP TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM FOR SENIORS
RSVP volunteers provide transportation services in Carson City and Nevada's rural communities with the ability to also drive them to urban areas for services they so desperately need. The Nevada Rural Counties RSVP Program has been serving senior Nevadan's for 43 years.
"We really need more drivers to help us deliver these services and we provide mileage reimbursement or offer our vans, when available, to transport those in need. I encourage volunteers to come forward and help fill the gaps for seniors who just need a little help to get to Dr. appointments, grocery shopping and to attend to other errands. If you can volunteer a couple of hours a week or even once or twice a month you will be providing a tremendous service to your community," said Susan Haas, Executive Director & C.E.O.
Nevada's rural seniors are provided with escorted transportation services which are so important to the confined elderly. This assistance helps to allay the terrible fear that they will not be able to remain independent and in their own homes where their possessions, family and memories all help improve their quality of life.
