Our Story

Volunteers of America is one of the nation’s largest, established comprehensive human services organizations with 16,000 mission-driven professionals, dedicated to helping those in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential. Founded in 1896, the faith-based nonprofit has programs in 46 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, serving more than 1.5 million people a year.

At Volunteers of America Oregon, we specialize in family safety, substance use, behavioral health, and reentry from the criminal justice system. For 125 years, we have been empowering individuals, families, and communities in Oregon including the aging population, young people, men and women returning from prison, 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.
