Volunteering for our agency gives you the opportunity to make a difference and meet new people, a chance to use skills you have developed over your lifetime, and satisfaction and fulfillment in helping others.
Last year, volunteers gave well over 16,000 hours of their time to people in need in Placer County. Without help from people like you, we would not be able to provide a safe, caring environment for families in crisis.
