Impact Statement

Volunteers of America helps the most vulnerable and under-served people achieve their full potential.

We provide services that are designed locally to address specific community needs. Our common areas of focus include promoting self-sufficiency for the homeless and for others overcoming personal crises, caring for the elderly and disabled and fostering their independence, and supporting positive development for troubled and at-risk children and youth. We look at the whole person and address both urgent and ongoing needs, with the goal of helping people become as self-reliant as possible. 

We draw on more than a century of experience and the reach of a nationwide movement that is:

  • Bonded by a commitment to faith, human dignity and social justice;
  • Dedicated to actively engaging volunteers in the community; and
  • Committed to the highest quality of service.
