Every year True Friends welcomes 400+ youth, adults, groups, and family volunteers who contribute over 20,000 service hours. The hours provided by volunteers save True Friends over one million dollars every year.

Support from volunteers like Gabby is invaluable.

“I started volunteering because I wanted to challenge myself with a community I was unfamiliar with,” Gabby said. “The more I volunteered, the more I grew. I learned patience, trust, and how to be more kind.”

Volunteers return time and time again to help make True Friends programs extraordinary. They assist directly with campers at summer and winter camp and year-round weekend respite. They are school and corporate groups working with facilities to keep our sites maintained.

Volunteers are professionals who assist in fundraising and organizational management. They are retirees who come with a lifetime of skills.

The one thing True Friends volunteers have in common is a passion to help others. Volunteers who spend a couple of hours or an entire summer with True Friends help fulfill an inspiring mission to provide life-changing experiences for children and adults with disabilities.
