RETIRED & SENIOR VOLUNTEER PROGRAM (RSVP)



MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Retired & Senior Volunteer Programs (RSVP) is to encourage Otero County residents age 55 and older to use their time, talents and life long experience to improve their community’s critical needs. The services provided by RSVP volunteers are in seven program emphasis areas: Health & Nutrition, Human Needs Services, Education, Environment, Public Safety, Community & Economic Development, and Faith Based Services. The SVP Staff will provide the training; encouragement and support that Senior Volunteers need to carry out their volunteer duties and achieve their own personal goals. The SVP Staff will endeavor to impress upon our volunteers the community’s appreciation for their significant positive impact in improving the way of life in our community. A primary part of our mission is to educate our community on the valuable services that our Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provide in our community; and to provide our volunteers with the recognition they so richly deserve.

The RSVP, is sponsored by the City of Alamogordo, has been providing services to Otero County since 1975.
