Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in. – Unknown

Looking to get involved with your community? Not sure where to start? Our community offers an abundance of opportunities for individuals and families to volunteer their time. Volunteers are a critical part of many agencies’ ability to offer a wide variety of programs and to continue to assist families in need. Volunteering also strengthens our commitment to the community we share.

Volunteer QuotesIt is important that any volunteer position be a “right fit” for both the agency and the volunteer. Asking yourself the following questions BEFORE you apply to an agency may help in the process and insure a stronger match between volunteer and agency.
