What is the best way for someone to contact your agency to access services? Call the program. Depending on the service you are requesting, staff will determine the process.

Describe the role that volunteers play in your agency: Volunteers play a huge role in our agency. Volunteers help support our programs by assisting with landscaping, painting, constructing new enrichment areas, deep cleaning, teaching classes, story time, donations, etc. We would not be able to provide all the opportunities we do without the help of volunteers.

What is the best way for someone to get involved with your agency: Contact the specific location where you have an interest of being involved. If you are unsure I would encourage you to set up a time to tour the locations. Once you contact the specific location they can provide you with specific needs to get involved in that program. Volunteering your time to teach a class, becoming a member on the Board of Visitors and helping with Wish List items could be a few examples.
