RSVP Volunteers

Retired and Senior Volunteer Program

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), sponsored by Finley Hospital, is a member of the Senior Corps network of programs that use the experience, skills and talents of adults 55 and older to meet the needs of our community. 

RSVP of Dubuque County has approximately 400 active volunteers that serve over 30 agencies county-wide. Volunteer opportunities include:

  • providing assistance at American Cancer Society's Discovery Shop
  • grounds work and gift shop opportunities at the Dubuque Arboretum and The Mines of Spain
  • providing friendly visits at local nursing homes
  • many other opportunities
A significant benefit of RSVP is learning about multiple volunteer opportunities and finding the right volunteer experience for you, without having to go to numerous places. One visit with RSVP and you will learn about all the opportunities we have within the community. We work with you to find the right placement and will help you get started wherever you choose. There is never a cost to join or be a member of RSVP.
