The best gift is you.

Why do volunteers matter? 

1. Volunteering connects you to others.
2. Volunteering is good for your mind and body.
3. Volunteering can advance your career.
4. Volunteering brings fun and fulfillment to your life.

When you volunteer in your community by giving your time, the positive benefits really are boundless. Volunteers have a huge impact on our organization, without them, it would not be possible for us to make a difference in the lives of our community's most vulnerable population. By volunteering at the Van Buren Center you help change lives and give hope to those who need it most.
