Why Volunteer?

“My brother lives with mental illness. Spending time each week with Shoshana has taught me what that really means. She’s given me insight. She helps me appreciate the small things. We’ve become such good friends.”  – Theresa Egerer, volunteer

  1. Share your talent and skill

    We all have skills and gifts to share with others. What can you share?

  2. Work as a Team

    Volunteer with your co-workers or friends and develop better communication and teamwork skills as you support Avivo’s program participants.

  3. Build community

    Connect with your community by volunteering and build new relationships with neighbors.

  4. Enhance your resume

    Volunteering is a great way to gain valuable experience in a new field, which is especially valuable for college students and recent graduates.

  5. Change lives of people and families

    The smallest moment while you volunteer can make a lasting impact in the lives of our participants and their families.
