Very often people are judged according to their limitations. But at Volunteers of America, we look beyond those limitations to help people realize their potential or discover their talents — especially those who are living with mental illness. As part of our evidence-based programming, we engage clients in activities that encourage creativity, independence and community engagement.
We believe a home is the foundation of life. That's why we take safety seriously for our residents, clients and our staff. Our efforts were recognized with a Workplace Safety Award by workers' compensation insurer MEMIC. We were among six companies and organizations recognized by MEMIC out of 20,000 policyholders.
