About Us

The UTMB Sealy Center on Aging has supported RSVP of Galveston County since 2002. RSVP is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over. Volunteers are engaged in projects supporting food and diaper banks, veterans, adult day programming, LGBT youth and adults, Meals on Wheels, health education and many other areas.

Under the authority of the Domestic Volunteer Service Act, the Corporation for National and Community Service provides grants to qualified agencies and organizations for the dual purpose of engaging persons 55 and older in volunteer service to meet critical community needs; and to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of volunteers.

"The Sealy Center on Aging is honored and committed to support such meaningful outreach and engagement among the senior community." - Dr. Elena Volpi, Director of UTMB Sealy Center on Aging
