About Us

Volunteers of America Western Washington (VOAWW) has been serving those in need since 1898.


Throughout nine counties and across eight key areas of service, VOAWW provides services to our most vulnerable neighbors, including people struggling against poverty, homelessness, mental illness, substance abuse, and trauma.


Last year, we served more than 315,000 children, teens, and adults from all backgrounds, supporting them when they need us at their most vulnerable. And the need is growing.

Will you join us?


Marlydann Dugger is a Support Specialist at the Arlington Community Resource Center, a place to get connected to essentials like emergency food and hygiene supplies or complex needs like referrals for housing stability.


When you partner with VOAWW, you help staff like Marlydann continue to Give Hope where it's needed most.

Together, we can Give Hope

where it's needed most across Western Washington.

We serve tens of thousands of households across Snohomish County each year across eight service areas that offer a path to healthy, stable lives.


Housing Services provides help navigating through resources for landlords and tenants, so families can stay housed. ECEAP preschool and youth programs target low-income households and provide wraparound services like parental support, meals, and supplies. Our senior centers are places where the vibrant aging population in our communities can engage in social activities and physical fitness, while residential programs for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities have access to much-needed services to support purposeful, independent living.


When you partner with us, you will help Give Hope to so many – and make a difference where it matters most.

8:00 am - 8:45 am

I'm hungry.

We need a safe place to sleep.

I'm small and still finding my voice.

I don't speak the language here.

I'm overwhelmed.

I am in crisis.

I feel isolated.

My words are hard to understand.

Is anyone listening?

We've been answering the call for our most vulnerable neighbors since 1898.
But we can't do it without you.
Give to the greatest need... and give hope a voice.

Thank you to our sponsors!
