Welcome to RSVP
Heart of Texas

Our Services

AmeriCorps Seniors is open to individuals 55 and older. 

Senior volunteers are matched to projects and agencies in the Heart of Texas six county region and are linked to almost one half million national services members state and nation wide. These volunteers can serve in schools, hospitals, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, nutrition sites, environmental and public safety programs, with at risk children and frail adults, disaster sites, crisis centers and food banks to name only a few. Each volunteer may choose their placement site, number of hours to serve or schedules desired and also the length of commitment. Some volunteers may wish to help in multiple sites or only offer one time, “at will” projects. There are opportunities for almost every possible desire for civic engagement and a staff to support that unselfish gift of time and service.

The AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP program provides grants to organizations with a dual purpose: to engage Americans 55 years and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs, and to provide a high-quality experience for the volunteers.  RSVP is one of the agency’s most flexible grant programs. Organizations determine where the need is greatest and how volunteers can respond to the need as long as it falls within one of AmeriCorps’ six focus areas:
