we make your to-do list more manageable

who we are

Rescue Desk Virtual Assistant Services makes your to-do list more manageable by taking important — but time-consuming — administrative and creative projects off your desk. By creating, managing, and coordinating all your support projects, you’ll have your most important commodity back. Your time.

We are an alternative to hiring support staff employees. We're a high-level executive assistant, project manager and marketing coordinator ... all rolled into one.

how we work
Retainer Plans

The majority of our clients put us on retainer for a set number of hours per month. This allows us to embed ourselves directly into your operations on a week-to-week basis, and be the “tactical team” taking care of your regularly-scheduled projects.

Single Projects

We get it. Sometimes you just need help temporarily with a big project or two, or need assistance during a busy business cycle. So, we can step in and take care of a single project or two without the commitment of a monthly retainer plan.

Managed Services

There’s some stuff we’re so good at that we’ve turned them into standalone, flat-fee services. Need someone to only manage your social media channels? To only do your monthly e-newsletters? A managed service would be perfect for you.

Time Blocks

Generally reserved for our NONPROFIT clients, time blocks allow you to reserve a block of Rescue Desk time, and we’ll make the most of every minute until the block is gone. No monthly minimums, no expiration date, no worries.
