Mission Statement
Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit, faith-based organization dedicated to helping those in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential.

Goals
Through distinct human service programs throughout the state of Colorado, including housing and healthcare, Volunteers of America helps more than 150,000 Coloradoans each year. Since 1896, our ministry of service has supported and empowered America’s most vulnerable groups, including children, the elderly, low-income families, homeless individuals and families, women escaping domestic violence, and those seeking affordable housing solutions. Our work touches the mind, body, heart — and ultimately the spirit — of those we serve, integrating our deep compassion with highly effective programs and services.

Fundraising Events: 

Volunteers of America recognizes that the cost of housing a homeless individual is approximately 70% less than the amount of tax dollars that would be spent to care for that individual on the streets. We amend our programs to consistently addresses the unmet needs of the community.
