Volunteers are vital to The Action Center’s success!!
In 1968, The Action Center was formed by a group of volunteers concerned for struggling families in the community. Today, nearly half a century later, volunteers are still at the core of The Action Center. There are more than 40 unique volunteer opportunities that include direct participant interaction, behind the scenes tasks and special events, just to name a few. Opportunities fall into one-time or weekly formats and are available for individuals, families, and groups – there’s a match for everyone!

In 2016, 4,734 individuals contributed 103,048 hours of service! Without them, The Action Center would have needed 80 additional staff members to meet the needs of the community! Check out this brief history of volunteerism at The Action Center.

Our volunteers often list “To Help Others” and “The Volunteer Team” as their top two reasons for volunteering with The Action Center. Volunteers produce a direct and immediate impact in the lives of our struggling neighbors every day. They create a vibrant and active volunteer community where they make new connections in a rewarding and supportive environment.
