Volunteers of America

The name Volunteers of America was selected when the organization was founded 125 years ago. It signified that the organization was comprised of people voluntarily choosing to help others. In those days, a volunteer was anyone who was committed to a mission or cause. Since its earliest days, when Volunteers of America brought food, medicine and comfort to people not served by other charities, volunteering has been instrumental in every aspect of the organization’s ministry of service.

Today, Volunteers of America services are delivered through a partnership of professional staff, volunteers, and other community supporters.
