Our Ministry

Our Ministry

In addition to being one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive human services organizations, Volunteers of America is a spiritual based ministry of service. For more than 100 years, Volunteers of America has provided essential services to heal both the body and spirit. We provide human service programs and opportunities for individual and community involvement.

Volunteers of America has been ecumenical from the beginning. Its ministers have always come from all Christian faith traditions. In fact, ministers are encouraged to be active in other Christian churches for worship, service to others and continued spiritual growth. This understanding of ministry derives from the foundation of Volunteers of America as both a church itself and as an "auxiliary" to the universal Christian church with a special mission of service.

Volunteers of America offers people a very unique opportunity to put their faith into action. Working together with the help of our committed volunteer board members and volunteers, we can achieve our collective mission and make the world a more compassionate place to live.

With Christ focused program enhancements, such as our Spiritual Guide Program, that offers weekly support and mentorship to patients in our residential treatment programs.
