2101 Kimball Ave., Suite 121; Waterloo, Iowa 50702
Ph. (319) 272-2250 fax (319) 272-1958


The purpose of RSVP is to engage persons 55 and older in volunteer service to help meet community needs and to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of volunteers.


How do I get involved?
Volunteers register with RSVP, identifying their interests. RSVP, in cooperation with other area nonprofit agencies, refers volunteers to agencies according to each agency's identified need and the interests identified by the volunteer.

Volunteers are never required to take an assignment.

The following are a few of the community needs RSVP is helping to address:

  • Literacy
  • Mentoring
  • Assisting students improve their understanding of the English language and culture
  • Assisting (through mediation) the Black Hawk County small claim division
  • Tax Preparation Assistance
  • Helping seniors in their home remain independent by way of friendly visiting, respite and money management.
  • SHIIP (Senior Health Insurance Information Program)- Volunteers, (trained by SHIIP staff) assist individuals with comparing and evaluating Medicare supplement and long term care insurance policies; help organize Medicare statements and file claims; assess your needs so you can make informed decisions about health insurance and understand your Medicare benefits and rights.
  • And much more

For more information and how you can get involved, call RSVP (319) 272-2250.
RSVP of Black Hawk County is under the Corporation for National Service (CNS) and is sponsored by Covenant Medical Center.
