Senior Focus Hawaii

One of the advantages of being a senior is the opportunity to volunteer your services to assist a number of worthwhile charitable organizations. The following charitable organizations need your help:

Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP): A non-profit organization sponsored by Helping Hands Hawaii, that places seniors age 55 or older into volunteer opportunities to facilitate the delivery of human services throughout communities on the island.  They are a part of Corporation for National and Community Service (CNS). RSVP volunteers on Oahu serve in over 80 nonprofit, public service agencies, school and organizations.  They are located at 2100 North Nimitz Highway, Honolulu, Hawaii 96819. 536-6543.

Project Visitation: This is a project of the State of Hawaii Family Court, which trains volunteers and uses them to assist in transporting siblings from their foster homes to locations where they can spend time together. Volunteers, also known as "Angels," take the children to the park, movies, out to eat, or to a place where the children can talk and just be together. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to get involved with helping Hawaii's abused and neglected children. It is important for volunteers to have a car and be able to drive. Call 528-7048 to get involved or click here to get more information from their website.

Passport in Time: This is a federal program of voluntary work projects with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forrest Service. Volunteers are matched with projects of historic preservation, conservation, restoration and archaeology throughout the United States. This program provides an excellent low cost vacation of learning and excitement in a safe and economical environment. Check out the webpage at www.passportintime.com or call (800) 281-9176 or write Passport in Time Clearing House, P.O. Box 31315, Tuscon, Arizona 85751-1315

Project Kokua: Compiled by the Honolulu Advertiser every week, Project Kokua provides a list of volunteer opportunities with local social service agencies. Simply click here and search the Back Issues for any Sunday or Monday.  Project Kokua is listed under Local News.
