Retired Senior Volunteer Program

Columbia County Retired Senior & Volunteer Program (RSVP) serves a dual purpose of engaging persons 55 and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs, and in providing a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of volunteers.  Columbia County RSVP promotes the engagement of older persons as community resources in planning for community improvement and in delivery of volunteer services.  Achievement of Columbia County RSVP's purpose is facilitated by coordination of the resources of CNCS, CRF&R and the community to fulfill the goals of Columbia County RSVP.
