RSVP volunteers, persons caring for a loved one 24/7, and other interested parties are encouraged to join us for this free training.

RSVP’s mission is to help frail, homebound, and low-income seniors remain independent by providing high quality programs which allow them to stay in their homes with dignity. Additionally, RSVP coordinates a volunteer network of seniors who use their skills and talents to provide support to community agencies and address community needs through service.

The training will also be broadcast to various locations in rural Nevada. For information regarding the locations of the training, if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, or if you are in need of assistance give us a call.
