These individuals have committed their time and talents in helping the Center’s staff and volunteers maintain excellence in client programming and professional community engagement, while ensuring that financial sustainability is supported.

We are searching for committed professional volunteers to serve on our organization’s governing body, increasing its capacity to support others in need.  Please review our Board Recruitment webpage and submit an inquiry form if you are interested in learning more about these opportunities in community service.
