Who We Are

Volunteers of America has served the people of Pennsylvania since 1896, the same year our nationwide movement began with the promise to “go wherever we are needed, and do whatever comes to hand”

Volunteers of America is a national, nonprofit, spiritually based organization providing local human service programs and opportunities for individual and community involvement. In Pennsylvania, our focus is providing affordable housing for veterans and their families, seniors, and people with disabilities. We also provide a variety of services such as pregnancy counseling, shelter for homeless women in need, child care, elderly transportation, limited volunteer programs, and many other services. Nationwide, Volunteers of America offers more than 100 different kinds of services in hundreds of communities touching the lives of more than two million people a year. We welcome your support of these efforts by donating your time or resources.
