Program History & Information

Lubbock RSVP is a grant funded non-profit agency that was established in 1979 and is under the umbrella of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and Senior Corps.  It was established with the purpose of encouraging adults, who are 55 and older, to volunteer and assist the Lubbock community by using the abilities, interests and skills they have acquired throughout their life.  The program engages seniors in a wide array of community services that help non-profit and community based organizations including health, nutrition, human services, education, community and economic development and public safety.  RSVP currently has 692 active volunteers serving the Lubbock community.  In 2017, Lubbock RSVP volunteers contributed over 110,000 volunteer hours which translates into over $2.5 million in economic impact to the Lubbock community.
