A history rich with kindness

We are Volunteers of America

Volunteers of America is the charity that always steps forward to help the most vulnerable. For over 119 years, we have taken on the most difficult tasks to help the most underserved.

Through thousands of human services programs, including housing and healthcare, Volunteers of America helps nearly 2 million people across the country – more than 17,000 in Greater Ohio alone. 

Established locally in 1896, our ministry of service has supported and empowered America’s most vulnerable groups including homeless veterans, at-risk youth, the frail elderly, men and women returning from prison, homeless individuals and families, people with disabilities, and those recovering from addictions. Our work touches the mind, body, heart – and ultimately the spirit – of those we serve, integrating our deep compassion with highly effective programs and services.

Working every day to uplift people in need.
