The 1896 Society

Foundation Story

Foundation StorySince 1896, Volunteers of America has been called by the Gospel to guide people to live healthy and fulfilling lives.  In living out this mission, the organization has become one of the largest nonprofits in the United States. Today, the need for our ministry of services remains strong, and we invite you to join us in believing in tomorrow.
