Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) engages persons 55 years of age and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs and to provide high quality experience that will enrich the lives of others.As the Del Norte RSVP Volunteer Services Specialist, I oversee the program in Del Norte County. I recruit older volunteers (55+) and match their interest and skills with one of the 10 organizations/agencies that are registered with RSVP in the area. We furnish bus passes or mileage reimbursement for lower income volunteers, removing one of the obstacles for them to volunteer and be connected to our community. It has been shown that active older adults live longer healthier lives. Please contact me if you would like to learn more about local volunteer opportunities.

Crescent City Downtown Divas

The Crescent City Downtown Divas, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, operate the Downtown Crescent City Farmers Market.  The market accepts Cal-Fresh, also known as EBT or food stamps, and federally known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). And due to the generous grant from the Del Norte Heath Care District, we were able to offer Market Match, as an additional benefit to our community.

Market Match is an incentive program that encourages those enrolled in the CalFresh food assistance program to improve their diets by eating more fruits and vegetables.

Market Match helps families with CalFresh stretch their food dollars and afford more healthy, locally grown fruits and vegetables. The program offers farmers’ market customers a dollar-for-dollar match when they use their CalFresh cards at selected farmers’ markets.

Market Match has proven results; helping families to eat better and farmers to sustain their operations. This is a long term health benefit of low income populations.
