Through our Americorps Senior R.S.V.P. (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) we focus our efforts on our over age 55 community. 
Through this program our senior volunteers, 55 years and older, stay active and contribute valuable experience to many local non-profits all throughout Kern County. 
Last fiscal year (July 2022-June 2023, these volunteers donated nearly 45,000 hours to our local non-profits.
THANK YOU!!

Here Is What's Happening!

Unlike many of the large nonprofits that are a chapter of a large organization, the Volunteer Center is a small independent nonprofit with no "parent" organization to cover expenses if needed.

We only have one small revenue source and receive a small County of Kern grant.

Our success depends on the support we receive through community donations and fundraisers.

Our efforts support animals, disabled, veterans and senior citizens!
