Senior Volunteer Services



​Sacramento County sponsors the three AmeriCorps Seniors programs funded by grants from AmeriCorps.  AmeriCorps Seniors engages people age 55+ to volunteer, sharing their lifetime of experience to address critical needs for the community  and supports seniors in their efforts to make a difference.  Collectively, these volunteers provide support that is valued at millions of dollars each year to  the residents of Sacramento, Placer and Yolo Counties​​

Retired & Senior Volunteer Program​

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) connects age eligible adults to volunteer opportunities in the community. RSVP Volunteers can select from a wide variety of opportunities to make a difference, such as delivering meals to the homebound, tutoring kids, providing companionship to isolated seniors, assisting local law enforcement or providing support to other public agencies and non-profits that meet critical community needs. They also get to select when, where, and how often they want to serve.

Senior Companion Program​​

The Senior Companion Program (SCP) recognizes the desire of homebound seniors to remain safely and happily in their own homes and is available to seniors living in Sacramento County. SCP assigns volunteers to organizations that serve isolated and frail adults. SCP volunteers visit with clients one on one usually at their home, reducing isolation and providing access to critical and recreational resources.

Foster Grandparent Program

The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) provides a way for age eligible volunteers to stay active by serving the children and youth in their communities. Volunteers serve at local organizations where they may help children learn to read or improve academically, mentor troubled youth, care for premature infants or children with illnesses, and help children who have other exceptional needs.
