How you help Find your Volunteer Community! As the saying goes, many hands make light work. We have several groups of like-minded volunteers who enjoy serving together.
About us Recognizing the value of empathy and service to others, the Volunteer Center has been "at the heart of helping" for more than 50 years, referring thousands of volunteers to both traditional and court-referred service opportunities. We learn the our most urgent needs by regularly listening to the members of our community. When we discover that a critical community need is going unmet, we lead the way by assembling a team of caring, talented volunteers to create a signature program. We love that moment when community members join together and give their precious time to a worthy cause, and our partnerships within the community allow us to have an even further reach. Whether its families, teens, seniors, professionals or court-referred volunteers, we serve EVERY member of our community.
