Join The Arc of Texas + RSVP program!
Through the support of the Corporation of National Community Service, the first pilot of the Retired & Seniors Volunteer Program (RSVP) pairing volunteers 55+ with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) has launched through The Arc of Texas in Williamson County. The program is designed to help:
- Increase social connectedness
