The RSVP of Central Oklahoma Story
RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) was established in 1971 by Senior Corps, part of the Corporation for National & Community Service. Each RSVP location is a separate nonprofit organization, benefiting from the nationwide effort to inspire older adults to volunteer and give back to their own communities.
RSVP of Oklahoma County was established in 1973 as nonprofit organization to serve older adults in central Oklahoma and surrounding communities. In 2000, the name was changed to RSVP of Central Oklahoma to better reflect the expanded services to neighboring counties.
For 41 years, RSVP of Central Oklahoma has been connecting older adults with community volunteer opportunities throughout central Oklahoma. Each RSVP volunteer is a Hero of Compassion as they serve by living, loving, and giving for a better community.
RSVP of Central Oklahoma is enriching the lives of older adults by connecting them with meaningful and rewarding community volunteer opportunities
Our vision is for older adults to continue to live a life full of purpose and meaning
