Community Action is not accepting volunteer applications at this time.

If you're looking for how best to support our participants right now, consider making a donation to support our efforts to respond to participants' immediate needs. You can learn more about these efforts, and support, HERE. 


Community Action aims to foster meaningful and fulfilling volunteer experiences. As a volunteer, you will serve as an important partner in empowering people living in poverty to reach economic stability.  We could not empower others without the volunteer support of people like you. We want to give all of our volunteers many opportunities to learn new skills and bring their unique expertise and perspectives to our Save & Closework. 

Together, we can break the cycle of poverty. Join our team!
