Veterans Volunteers in Partnership
The Veterans Volunteers in Partnership (VIP) Program provides community-based services and supports to Veterans and helps them remain living independently and in their own homes with dignity.
The VIP Program is specifically tailored to Veterans and their caregivers of any age with direct services provided by well-trained volunteers. RSVP’s services include VA transportation and trips to medical and dental appointments, to pick up prescriptions, socialization opportunities, and shopping; Wellness Checks, Referrals to supportive services and Veterans resource agencies; Advocacy; Respite Care and Caregiver support; home companionship; pro bono legal services; personal emergency response systems; homemaker cleaning and companion services; elder exercise programs; and access to the Farmer’s Market Senior Nutrition program/coupons and food drop.
The VIP Program collaborates with veterans’ service organizations and other entities, and presents two community events annually: Veterans & Their Caregivers Community Resource Fair, and “Reaching For Zero” a Veteran Suicide Prevention & Awareness Event.
Veterans have opportunities to serve as volunteers and make peer connections with other veterans; and remain active, engaged, and social.
“In times of war and conflict, we leave no soldier behind…as well as at home, no veteran should be left behind. The Carson City Sheriff’s Office partners with RSVP so that no veteran is left behind.”
– Sheriff Ken Furlong, Carson City Sheriff’s Office
