Our Ministry of Service

Who are we?

Volunteers of America is a church without walls. Since 1896, we have answered God’s call to transform lives by reaching and uplifting America’s most vulnerable.

We do this through a ministry of service led by more than 16,000 professionals, working across the country to touch the lives of 1.5 million people each year. We seek to serve the needs of the whole person (mind, body and spirit) by bringing together the human service agency and the church. We provide assistance to people of all faiths and never require those we serve or those we employ to participate in worship services or to acknowledge specific beliefs. Yet, from our very beginning, Volunteers of America’s work has been and continues to be motivated by God’s love. We have answered the call to be a ministry of service that sets Volunteers of America apart.

We're In the Love Business
