How we reach our most vulnerable neighbors and provide them with the assistance they need to become as self-sufficient as possible
Volunteers of America is a national non-profit with branches throughout the United States. Each branch is unique because the staff understands the existing needs within its geography. This is how we reach our most vulnerable neighbors and provide them with the assistance they need to become as self-sufficient as possible. We recognize the senior who needs assistance with her grocery shopping in Fort Collins and the student who has never been to camp before. We support Denver's homeless female veterans who have been under-served and prepare preschoolers to be successful in elementary school. This is how Volunteers of America remains a vital component within every community, understanding Coloradoans and matching helping hands through vital programs.
