You can play a significant role in helping individuals and families through a difficult time in their life. We invite you to help serve your community in a way that truly makes a difference. With a focus on respect, support and empowerment, your donated time helps to provide hope to our clients as they move towards self-sufficiency.
Contributions of time, talent and resources are an integral part of Valley Outreach’s ability to meet the basic needs of food, clothing and emergency financial assistance.
Volunteers are essential to the work we do at Valley Outreach, and we really wouldn’t exist without them. Every week our dedicated team of volunteers donates over 100 hours of their time as they assist in the operation of our programs. They come from various backgrounds and cover all ages, but the common thing they share is a desire to help our neighbors in need and enjoy working together. Valley Outreach volunteers bring their expertise, care and time to make a brighter future for our community. New volunteers are always welcome and quickly become part of the Valley Outreach volunteer team.
