Southern Rhode Island Volunteers’ mission is to enhance lives by inspiring, creating and supporting a lifelong culture of service through our volunteer members and affiliates across Southern Rhode Island.
While creating a lifelong culture of volunteering and service to others, Southern Rhode Island Volunteers (SRIV) makes a difference in lives one at a time, one volunteer at a time, ultimately creating a community of quiet hero volunteers who make our southern third of Rhode Island a wonderful place to grow, age, work, play and live in!

People in need of a helping hand across our southern 12 communities in RI are provided assistance by SRIV's volunteers and staff who provide service that is organized and managed by SRIV. Our flagship service programs include:
Independent Aging Well Services
Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
SRIV’s team also collaborates with many community nonprofit organizations addressing additional community needs and concerns from educational support to food security to affordable housing to cultural history to environmental concerns to animal needs and more. A helping hand for one individual has far reaching effects for that person and an entire community. Working to make your home the best it can be benefits every one of us.
SRIV offers opportunities for neighbors to volunteer using skills and talents to benefit individuals in need and the greater community. Whether you are a retiree with extra time on your hands, a student looking to fulfill service hours, or an individual or group interested in being involved, SRIV has an opportunity for you. Can you just imagine what you and I can do together to make life all it can be for our hometowns and our neighbors?
