RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over. RSVP is a Senior Corps program administered by the Corporation for the National and Community Service and is sponsored locally by Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio. A completed application is required for all volunteers. Applicants must be at least 55 years of age to participate in the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program.
We place more than 130 RSVP volunteers serving at many non-profit organizations in Hamilton County. RSVP acts as an instrument of change in linking the skills and experiences of volunteers who are 55+ with community service needs. We partner with Hamilton County service organizations whose priority is to make a significant and positive difference in our community. We provide opportunities for those 55+ to have high-quality experiences that enrich their lives.

Join RSVP  and you join nearly 500,000 volunteers across the country who are tackling tough issues in their communities.
• RSVP is open to all people age 55 and over.
• Volunteers do not receive monetary incentives.
