About RSVP

The mission of the City of Miles City RSVP is to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for individuals 55 and older to meet community needs.

RSVP is sponsored by the City of Miles City through grant funding provided by the Corporation for National and Community Services along with local funding such as fundraising activities, grants from L.P. and Teresa Anderson Foundation, St. Vincent DePaul, and the Governor’s Office of Community Service.
