About Us

Volunteers of America Michigan is the charity that always steps forward to help the most vulnerable. For 125 years,
we have taken on the most difficult tasks to help the most underserved.

Since 1896, we have supported and empowered America's most vulnerable groups, including veterans, at-risk youth, the frail elderly, homeless individuals and families, people with disabilities, and those recovering from addictions. 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.

When Volunteers of America was founded in 1896, "volunteer" referred to anyone who served others as a vocation through a commitment to a mission. Today, we are still staffed by mission-driven professionals working to
empower individuals and build thriving communities.
