Volunteering2 with Us Banner

volunteering opportunities

Nothing is greater than the heart’s motivation to to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Research has consistently shown that people who give up some of their time or skills to help others are generally happier, healthier and sleep better than those who don’t volunteer and it has been well documented that sustained volunteering is associated with better mental health. We have a number of programs needing volunteers.
