Volunteers of America National Services (VOANS) serves as the Housing and Healthcare affiliate of the Volunteers of America parent organization. Incorporated in Minnesota as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 1982, the issue of providing services in senior housing served as the catalyst for this merger of housing and healthcare activities.
