Senior Corps Directors from across the great state of Indiana gathered in Indianapolis to learn new building block to help with their programs and lives. They also took part in two service projects (one for a meal delivery program and the other for the Indiana Veteran's Home) and also had a chance to attend the Indianapolis International Festival. It was a great conference for learning, networking and growth as a State Senior Corps Association!

RSVP of Fulton County is a caring community where our volunteers assist those in need so that both the volunteer & recipient benefit. Our volunteers help in countless ways to make our community a better place to live & raise a family. Volunteers from the Rochester Lions club help to build ramps for elderly and/or disabled persons who need to be able to easily get out of their home to socialize and get to medical/pharmacy appointments. RSVP volunteers give of their time to help with our food pantries, Meals on Wheels deliveries, free dinners, and Christmas basket program. Baby hats & booties are made for the newborns in our community, and baby blankets are made for Riley Children’s Hospital. Volunteers help out at our community center each day in various capacities such as receptionist, United Ministries assistance, newsletter folding, and Bingo games. The volunteers at the Fulton Co. Historical Society & Museum help keep the past alive by preserving old documents, photographs, and other historical items. Hospital volunteers assist at the information desk and the gift shop, and HeadStart volunteers work with pre-school children making crafts. Library volunteers read to children, Literacy Coalition volunteers provide tutoring assistance, and our SuperKids volunteers help school-age children with homework and provide mentoring guidance. RSVP of Fulton Co. works here because we have volunteers who have the time, talents, and are willing to step up and help their fellow community members.

The RSVP 55+ Volunteer Program of Monroe and Owen Counties is a corps of volunteers who have been making a difference locally since 1988. RSVP volunteers serve in a variety of areas, using their experience and expertise to give back, make a difference, and leave a legacy for future generations.

Volunteers benefit greatly from their service, perhaps even more than the non-profit. Scientific studies have shown that volunteers enjoy health benefits like lower blood pressure, lower depression and less social isolation, and higher levels of brain functioning, higher levels of physical ability, and more happiness when compared to non-volunteers.

The RSVP office provides:
-information about volunteer needs
-assistance locating opportunities that match a volunteer’s interests/schedule
-special events emails, connecting volunteers of one-time events and activities

Joyce Tubbs is a Fort Wayne, Indiana, Foster Grandparent serving at Hanna Creighton Head Start during the school year and the school camps during the summer. She has been serving five years, four days a week and has logged 4,700 hours of service to Fort Wayne’s special needs children. She considers all the children her babies. She takes the time to really connect with each child by reaching out to the shy children so they feel comfortable in the classroom and she takes the time to listen to them. Her main focus each year is to encourage the new three-year-olds to participate and to work with the older children that will be leaving in the spring for kindergarten the next year. Her advice for success is, “You just got to love them.”

Maggie Banks is a Fort Wayne, Indiana, Foster Grandparent serving at Hanna Creighton Head Start. She has been there two years, four days a week and has logged 2,400 hours of service to Fort Wayne’s special needs children. Her philosophy is to put learning into every conversation and interaction she has with a child. She has one little boy who puts on a fireman’s costume everyday and she begins work time by asking him where is he going to fight the fire today. This question begins the conversation and the journey through each day’s learning. Neither child nor Grandmother knows where it will end, maybe counting birds on a fence, looking for blue cars, or discussing the shapes of the different foods at lunch. She takes the time to really connect with each child by calming them and listening to them. She urges fellow Grandparents not to give up on “their” children because of the children’s behaviors. Maggie says, “We might be their last chance.”

In Daviess and Martin Counties, during the 2014/15 school year, 91 children in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades participated in a Pen Pal program with RSVP Volunteers to improve literacy and enhance their communication skills. On May 15, 2015, the pairs met in person for the first time and celebrated with a pizza party. The program is a favorite of the volunteers and kids alike. The teachers tell us that from the beginning of the school year to the end of the school year, the children’s reading and writing skills improve across the board. An added bonus to both the student and the volunteer is the opportunity to make a new friend, and you can never have enough of those!

Ruth joined the United Way Retired & Senior Volunteer Program of Northwest Indiana when it was first started in the region. Through the years she helped many different organizations with her volunteer efforts. Ruth saw the importance of using her time and skills to assist those in need. A couple years back she suffered a fall in her own home and she was unable to stay by herself anymore. Ruth was moved to a senior facility but her need to serve never stopped. She heard of a program the United Way RSVP was doing, collecting and donating sample sized toiletry items to active military and community members in need. Although she could no longer go to a station to volunteer, the volunteering came to her. Ruth marked and sorted over 5,000 items for our active military men and women. Through her effort, 625 deployed military member received some care from home. So although Ruth can no longer serve at an agency she still continues to serve her community of Northwest Indiana.
