Children are hungry. Senior citizens must choose between buying their medicine and paying for food. More and more veterans are losing their homes. We’re starting our fiscal year facing an overwhelming demand for our services. Your gift is urgently needed to help give nutritious food and vital help to people in desperate need. Our 2015 Annual Fund Drive is your chance to show your support to people who need it most.

Helping More Than 2 Million People
Our mission to help the most vulnerable was realized again this past year through the more than 2 million people we served. We recognize that in today’s world so many things seem uncertain. Every night you watch the news you are reminded of just how uncertain the world really is. And yet, one thing that is certain is that Volunteers of America will be shining a light on America’s most vulnerable in every community it touches nationwide.
Volunteers of America is proud to be a sponsor of The Summit: World Change through Faith & Justice, convened by Sojourners, a national Christian organization committed to faith in action for social justice. Volunteers of America President Mike King will be part of a panel on moral injury on Friday, June 19. At The Summit, select leaders from a variety of sectors will meet to discuss, strategize, and create opportunities to act on some of the most pressing issues in our nation and world.
