Why Give To Us: Stories of Hope

One night in a shelter can provide comfort and security, but one night won't end a man's homelessness. Solving the problem that makes him homeless will. At Volunteers of America we help people change their lives for the better. Volunteers of America is unique among humanitarian organizations in that we provide both immediate assistance and long-term solutions that benefit individuals and families.


Perhaps no other organization offers such a wide range of community-based programs and services for people of all ages. Across the nation our programs range from children, youth and family services to affordable housing for the elderly. We are caregivers, problem solvers and believers in miracles. When you make a charitable gift to Volunteers of America, you help a man or women take the first step toward self-sufficiency and you also ensure that someone will be there to walk with them the extra mile.
