Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of the Texas Gulf Coast is sponsored by the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center, a United Way Agency. Through its Community Services, the JCC brings a variety of programs and activities, including RSVP, to the Greater Houston community for the betterment of all, regardless of religion, race or other distinctions.

What is RSVP?

RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over. RSVP invites you to join nearly 500,000 volunteers across the country who are tackling tough issues in their communities.

Think of RSVP this way. Most people have been invited to a party or two in their lifetimes. Those invitations may have been marked, “RSVP,” meaning that you were being asked to respond as to whether or not you would attend. Similarly, serving with RSVP is your way of responding to the invitation to make a difference in your community through volunteerism.

What do RSVP volunteers do?
