Basic Needs Services

"I never thought we would need the help, but within days we were going to be homeless. I didn't know where else to turn."



For Laura and her family, a bump in the road was all it took to bring them to the brink of crisis. Many families that come to us for help just need a little assistance to make it through a difficult time.

At Volunteers of America we create new beginnings by fulfilling basic needs. Providing services such as housing, emergency items and life skills classes is a vital part of our daily mission to reach, serve, uplift, and empower individuals, families, and communities.

We believe in a community in which families, children and seniors have a safe and affordable roof over their heads, nutritional and balanced food on their table, and a plan to work through current struggles toward a better life.
