At WestArk RSVP, we take great pride in providing assistance to low-income people, giving companionship and support to the elderly, and addressing important community needs throughout Western Arkansas.
Serving Our Communities
Focusing on Economic Opportunity, Education and Healthy Futures.
WestArk RSVP is a proactive volunteer clearinghouse that recruits and connects active adults who are 55 years of age or older with a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout their communities. Direct services to the community are provided through the RSVP Community Outreach program, enabling RSVP volunteers to make a difference in the lives of veterans, Medicare beneficiaries and struggling working families.
While there are many generous and willing volunteers eager to become involved in community service, often times there’s a disconnect between those who need help and those willing to provide it. WestArk RSVP bridges that gap. Our mission to promote volunteerism throughout an eight county area in western Arkansas, consisting of Benton, Boone, Carroll, Crawford, Madison, Marion, Sebastian, and Washington counties.
Our volunteers choose how and where they want to serve. Some continue the type of work that they’ve always enjoyed. Others choose a completely new path. Our volunteers help out in schools, senior centers, hospitals, and food banks. Whether it's delivering a hot meal to a shut-in, preparing an income tax return, or completing an online application for Medicare Extra Help, the members of WestArk RSVP get great satisfaction from volunteering.
