At WestArk RSVP, we take great pride in mobilizing Arkansans to strengthen their communities through volunteering, collaboration, and national service programs. We provide assistance to low-income people, giving companionship and support to the elderly, and address important community needs across eight counties in Northwest Arkansas.
WestArk RSVP is a proactive volunteer clearinghouse that recruits and connects active adults, ages 55 or older, with a variety of volunteer opportunities within their communities. Direct services are provided to the community, enabling RSVP volunteers to make a difference in the lives of seniors, Medicare beneficiaries, and working families.
RSVP is an organization like no other! 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 is to promote volunteerism across an eight county area in Northwest Arkansas, consisting of Benton, Boone, Carroll, Crawford, Madison, Marion, Sebastian, and Washington counties.
RSVP member volunteers choose how and where they want to serve. Some continue the type of work they've always enjoyed, while others choose a completely new path. Our volunteers serve in senior centers, hospitals, food banks, libraries, and other community organizations. Whether it's delivering a hot meal to a shut-in, preparing an income tax return, or submitting an application for Medicare Extra Help, the members of WestArk RSVP get great satisfaction from volunteering.
