At this time, our resource centers and offices are closed to the public as we continue to serve our clients virtually.

Looking for an opportunity to give back to your community?  Every volunteer that partners with us becomes part of helping us achieve our mission to help people and change lives. Examples of how our volunteers have served with us include:

  • Assisting with grocery and nutritious food deliveries to local food pantries that serve meals to our community members.
  • Delivering meals to homebound seniors in Hillsborough County through Meals on Wheels.
  • Partnering with an elementary school student to write monthly letters through the school year to increase the student's grammar, spelling and penmanship skills.
  • Providing counseling to individuals incarcerated through the New Hampshire Department of Corrections with professional training and support.

We also provide volunteer opportunities to complete court-appointed Community Service hours.


At this time, our volunteer opportunities are very limited but look forward to reopening more in the future.
