Thousands of individuals across Michigan have joined the Volunteers of America Michigan family. Anyone who is willing to step-up and help us in our mission to serve the most vulnerable by volunteering their time or making a financial contribution becomes a part of our family. No contribution is too small.

Volunteers like you are critical to the mission and daily work of Volunteers of America Michigan. You make it possible to help those in need. There are a variety of ways to get involved. Volunteer opportunities fit almost any schedule, and we accommodate both individuals and groups up to 30.

You can serve meals to the hungry, hold your own donation drive, beautify our veterans garden, join our seniors in building a puzzle, help in the office and so much more.

    Our seniors just need a friend

    We provide affordable housing across the state, mostly for seniors. We've noticed that many of them are in their financial state because they have little to no support system. That means not much family, and few friends. Help us bring a little fun into their lives through senior companionship opportunities, like bingo, dances, sing a longs, card games, and more.

    Befriend a senior!
