Opportunities For Those 55 and Older
Research indicates older adult volunteers are the most likely to receive physical and mental health benefits from volunteer activities.
Some seniors wish to remain in their own homes but need help with daily living. Others are more active but desire to connect with and serve others. The Senior Companion Program tackles both needs by matching elderly seniors who need companionship with older adult volunteers who can help.
When an older adult connects with a child, the relationship is mutually beneficial. Foster Grandparents have big hearts and love making a difference in the life of a child. Our volunteers work one-on-one with children with special needs in schools, early childhood education centers, medical settings, and shelters to help jumpstart children on a path of success.
RSVP (formerly the Retired Senior Volunteer Program) connects older adults (individually or in groups) with fulfilling ways to give back, in over 50 Dallas-area community organizations.
Texas Senior Medicare Patrol
Medicare scams cost taxpayers more than $60 billion each year. Texas Senior Medicare Patrol volunteers give presentations to Medicare beneficiaries, their families, and caregivers teaching them to detect and report health care fraud and abuse. Some of our volunteers contact local groups to schedule presentations, and others train with us to be presenters.
