"Volunteers are the only human beings on earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience and just plain love for one another." - Erma Bombeck, Dayton, Ohio author, columunist and humorist
"Volunteering for Partners For Community Living is a win-win for the volunteers and the clients!" Nancy Slezak, GE Money
Did you know that the average monetary value of time donated by volunteers is $20.25 per hour, according to a study by Independent Sector, a coalition of charities and foundations? Our volunteers provide more than 5,000 hours of service annually.
As one of our volunteers you will be a valued partner in our mission of opening doors of opportunity for people with developmental disabilities. Your service, whether for a one-time event, an annual activity, or on a continuing basis, will add significantly to the quality of life for the people we serve.
Just ask Friend By Choice volunteers Diana, James, Nancy and others and they will tell you that volunteering with us will change your life as much or more than it changes the lives of those you serve.
View our Volunteer brochure to learn more about the range of volunteer opportunities available to you and the support we offer you as a valued partner with us. We also welcome volunteers who are interested in leadership opportunities as members of our boards of trustees or service on our committees.
