Helping America's most vulnerable™

Media Center

Volunteers of America touches the lives of 2 million people in 400 communities across the United States each year. Since 1896, our highly-trained and dedicated staff, numbered at over 16,000, and volunteer corps have worked, not only to serve those most in need, but also have strived to innovate and transform the way in which these services are delivered. These human service leaders offer a wealth of expertise in their fields, whether it’s providing care and services to low-income seniors, developing and managing affordable housing, finding shelter and services for homeless veterans, or helping those in prison re-build family relationships that lead to successful lives.
