OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
"To compassionately serve and strengthen individuals by empowering them to build healthy and happy lives."
Our faith-based organization is guided by professional staff and committed volunteers who create strong families
and thriving communities through progressive holistic programs by lending a hand up, not a hand out.
Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit, faith-based organization dedicated to helping those in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential. Established in Sheridan, Wyoming in 1985, we are fueled by love and compassion, a deeply held belief in human worth and dignity, and an unfailing dedication to the human spirit. All of our programming is about helping those we serve create whole lives.
Our holistic and integrated service model allows us to move individuals, families - and even communities - from instability to security, from feeling unseen and uncared for to acknowledged and affirmed, and from isolation to independence. Our results clearly demonstrate that when you see and work with the potential in everyone, you can accomplish more than anyone thought was possible.
