Important updates in our company
Refreshed User Interface

Check out the nacho bar Shannon Morlan, our Handyman Manager, provided for our ramp crew volunteers as appreciation for all they do!
She also obtained additional grant funds through Bray Cares! 
Thank you so much Shannon for all you do.
The handy man project is a vital part of Mesa County RSVP...
One of our clients, just to leave home, it took two people on either side of her to help her down the six stairs from her house to her mobility scooter. When she returned home, she left the scooter at the bottom of the stairs, sat down, and used her arms to propel herself up those six steps. This limited her activity and forced her to stay home, except for doctor visits.
Pamela needed a wheelchair ramp. Since RSVP Handyman Project volunteers constructed one for her, she can ride her scooter into and out of her home whenever she wants-independently, and without pain. She plans to enjoy life again by volunteering in our community, and can once again, as she says, "participate in my own life".
What the handyman project crew does is invaluable. You have our sincere gratitude. 
Volunteer Opportunities
We have been hunting for you! We have several volunteer opportunities coming up. We would love for you to be a part of the festivities and join our team
Changing lives since 2013.
Stephanie began volunteering with RSVP in November 2013 and has served a total of 7176.85 hours.


Stephanie has served at Museum of Western Colorado – Cross Orchards since January 2018 and Roice-Hurst Animal Shelter from November 2015 through August 2020. Stephanie has also volunteered as an usher for the Grand Junction Symphony, other one-time events, and in the office of Mesa County RSVP.


Valerie Herrera-Hanner, our volunteer manager, sat down and asked Stephanie how she started with RSVP, and she said she went to a Medicare 101 class in our office and heard about RSVP. She thought that this would be a good way to give back.


Stephanie said that her favorite volunteer position has been at Cross Orchards and she has served there the longest.


Valerie asked Stephanie what would people be surprised to know about you? She said that she was in the Army Nurse Corps in Ft. Myers Virginia and New Jersey. She also was in Public Health Nursing in Colorado Springs and then went to Alaska where she provided medical care to nine villages. It was quite an adventure. Stephanie served as a Nurse Practitioner for around 12 years.


I asked her what she would say to someone considering volunteering with RSVP. She talked about the opportunities that are available, that the staff are concerned about the volunteers, they keep track of them and that there are so many different things to do so that a person doesn’t have to feel stuck or bored with a position.
Thank you Stephanie for over 7000 hours of dedication, 
we appreciate you!
