Join Our Campaign!

RSVP volunteers are the heart of a community. Volunteers give their time to help children in school, keep parks and trails safe and clean, welcome newcomers to the region when they step off a plane, provide information in health care settings, senior centers, and nutrition sites, provide support for older adults aging in place, and work with active military and their families as they deploy to the armed services.

Volunteers can choose assignments that support more social contact and team work or they can work in their own home knitting hats, scarves, mittens and lap robes. Volunteers can learn new skills in crafts, counseling Medicare/Medicaid recipients, tutoring students, or providing community education in emergency preparedness.


 ​Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. 



You help older adults with chronic and acute medical conditions and frailties maintain their highest level of independence through companionship and respite. 

Being a volunteer is not only sharing your time, but your love in the Tri-County area with RSVP of Ingham, Eaton & Clintion Counties!

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn
