Welcome to Ministry at VOA Northern New England
WHAT IS THE MINISTRY OF VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA?
Volunteers of America (VOA) is a movement inspired by faith and love to end poverty, improve community well-being, and uplift all people to lead lives of purpose and meaning. Over a hundred and twenty-five years ago, people inspired by faith established VOA as a ‘church without walls’ and committed themselves to serving their neighbors who were living in poverty. Today, VOA continues to serve under-resourced communities and measures its success in positive changes in the lives of those we serve. We seek to serve the needs of the whole person—body, mind and spirit.
VOA is a national nonprofit organization with nearly 16,000 paid, professional employees dedicated to helping those in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential. Through our ministry we feed hungry households, house persons who have experienced homelessness, offer treatment, connect communities to end isolation, and provide social and spiritual support for over one million people around the country. The mission of our church is to serve others and not to implant or convert others to a specific spiritual path or doctrine.
