Purpose of the Volunteers of America

The mission of Volunteers of America is to reach out and uplift people's lives through the knowledge and service of God. In everything Volunteers of America does, they illustrate God's presence and that includes serving the communities and people who are in need.

They measure their own success through the positive changes they are able to bring to the lives of both the individuals and communities in which they serve. They vision a world in which all people are able to live safely with physical, emotional and social wellbeing, justice, spiritual fulfillment and lots of hope.

The goal is to serve those that are underprivileged, the most vulnerable and those who do not have the means to help themselves. Through this service they hope to help people reach their potential to its maximum capacity possible.

They pride themselves on being able to provide specific services for the particular community in which they are located in order to address that individual community's needs. The common thread they try to promote is for homeless people to become self-sufficient and for others to be able to overcome whatever personal crisis is holding them back from reaching their potential.

They foster independence for the disabled and the elderly and help in the positive development of at-risk and troubled children and adolescents. Their goal is long term success of every person and hence, they look at the whole person in order to address the most ongoing and urgent needs.

They ultimately want all people to reach a point of being as self-reliant as they can be, understanding that some are able to be more self-reliant that others. Through more than 100 years of experience Volunteers of America's nationwide network has been tied together by its commitment to human dignity, faith and social justice for everyone. They are committed to the highest standard of service and to being actively involved with both employees and volunteers in all of the communities they serve.
