Senior Volunteer Services


Description

Sacramento County sponsors all three Senior Corps programs of the Corporation for National and Community Service. Senior Corps engages people age 55+ to volunteer, sharing their lifetime of experience to address critical needs for the community and supports seniors in their efforts to make a difference. Collectively these volunteers provide support that is valued at millions of dollars each year to the citizens of Sacramento, Yolo and Placer Counties.

Retired & Senior Volunteers

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) connects age eligible adults to volunteer opportunities in the community. RSVP Volunteers can select from a wide variety of opportunities to make a difference, such as delivering meals to the homebound, tutoring kids, providing companionship to isolated seniors, assisting local law enforcement or providing support to other public agencies and non-profits that meet critical community needs. They also get to select when, where, and how often they want to serve.

Senior Companions

The Senior Companions Program (SCP) recognizes the desire of homebound seniors to remain safely and happily in their own homes and is available to seniors living in Sacramento County. SCP assigns volunteers to organizations that serve isolated and frail adults. SCP volunteers visit with clients one on one usually at their home, reducing isolation and providing access to critical and recreational resources.

Foster Grandparents

The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) provides a way for age eligible volunteers to stay active by serving the children and youth in their communities. Volunteers serve at local organizations where they may help children learn to read or improve academically, mentor troubled youth, care for premature infants or children with illnesses, and help children who have other exceptional needs.

SAS Volunteers

SAS also has volunteer opportunities through our Home Visitor and Telephone Reassurance Volunteer Programs.

  • Home Visitor volunteers offers weekly, bi-weekly or monthly visits to frail, isolated, elderly and/or disabled seniors of Sacramento County, IHSS and APS clients. Volunteers also assist with medical transportation and trips to the grocery stores. They also provide resource materials and referrals to volunteer programs.
  • Telephone Reassurance volunteers provide support to our isolated seniors by placing a call to a client at a scheduled time to check on their well-being and refer any client concerns to a designated SVS staff member.
