We rely on volunteers and your commitment is appreciated!
Caring community members like you are the key to our ability to provide exceptional services. Whether you are able to contribute a single hour, an hour a day, or an hour a month, your support will have an impact. You’ll help give those we serve an opportunity to lead a full and meaningful life.
If you cannot join as an active volunteer, donations of items for participants to use for special art, music, writing, drama activities, etc., are also needed. We have a variety of opportunities available, depending on the location.
“The participants feel so good about what they do, and that makes me feel worthwhile.”
Carol Taebel, Board Member
