Safety Net Services + RSVP Volunteers
We offer five safety net services that help local at-risk seniors: Carry-Out Caravan, Fix-It Home Repairs, IceBusters, Medical Mobility, and YardBusters. When our over 800 volunteers are out the community providing these direct services to our elders, they are also alleviating elder isolation, connecting seniors with other people of all ages, and supporting those who are aging in place within our neighborhoods.
In addition to our safety net services, BCCC is also the RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) station in Boulder County. RSVP is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. Our RSVP program has been providing meaningful opportunities for age 55+ volunteers here in Boulder County since 1972!
Below you will find descriptions of our five safety net services and RSVP 55+ Volunteer Program.
