Volunteers play an essential role to our programs and services and without the interest and dedication of individuals like yourself, we would not be able to offer many of our services. Our volunteer opportunities are great for individuals AND small groups (individual, church or business)! Often volunteers are the first people to connect with our clients and the impact you have on their life is best said by them:

“I called a number of places, but came here because the person on the phone really cared about me.”

“I was offered a genuinely kind ear, necessities for my daughter, a free ultrasound, and free parenting classes. I received phone calls weekly just to ask how my day was.”

“Since the first meeting with Hope Clinic, my life has changed. They made me feel that I belong to the Hope Clinic family.”
