What's New
United Way Week of Caring

October 1-5, 2018 was the United Way Week of Caring, where groups take on service projects, coordinated by United Way, to better their communities. VOICe hosted a group of volunteers from Mars Bank who painted indoor walls around our offices and transitional housing. VOICe staff are incredibly grateful for those six volunteers, who donated their time and labor to freshen up the spaces we use daily. 

Volunteering doesn't have to be limited to one week of the year. If you or your group is interested in volunteering with VOICe, click here to learn more!
