Groups

Whether you're looking for a one-time project or an ongoing partnership, we welcome you for a fun, team-building project.  We have projects groups can adopted and projects with set dates that individuals are welcome to join!

Broaden your perspective and see the impact you can make by learning about how VOA's programs address social issues in our community... and feel the satisfaction of completing a project in one day through teamwork!  


Contact Volunteer Services to request the 2014 Project ListOptions include flexible scheduling, flexible location, and direct-service opportunities.   And if you are an individual looking for a project, each one has several dates set this spring when you can join an existing group!


Current Projects

There are several great ways that your group can bring a sense of value and belonging to a parent, child, or elder experiencing isolation and transition:  

Honoring Our Elders:  Join our Activity Coordinator in sharing crafting, music, art, and gardening activities on select Mondays & Thursdays at the Lambert House Adult Day Center.  Lunch and laughter provided.

Connecting the Generations:  Support a visit from preschoolers to join in activities and make new friends on select Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Lambert House.  Lunch and laughter provided!

Strengthening Communities:  Assist low-income housing residents with food prep and serving, and join in the meal and festive activities for children and families.  Contact Volunteer Services for event dates.  

Contact Nancy Loso at volunteer@voaor.org for full project descriptions or to connect with program staff to schedule your project!
