PAINESVILLE, Ohio, February 28, 2023 – In 2021, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Lake County, also known as RSVP, transitioned to the Board of Lake County Commissioners and was re-branded as the Lake County Volunteer Network (LCVN).
“Since the transition of the program, it has continued to flourish by working to connect adults, aged 55+, to meaningful volunteer opportunities in the community,” said Commission President John R. Hamercheck.
Most recently, the LCVN partnered with Lifeline, Inc. on implementing a new program, named Helping Hands for Seniors. Helping Hands for Seniors matches eligible older adults, 60+, who reside independently in Lake County with vetted volunteers who will assist them with daily activities that are essential for their health and safety. Services that Helping Hands for Seniors can provide may include minor repairs and handy-person tasks, outside maintenance, various errands outside the home, technology services, and other in-home services.
