Welcome to Volunteer Services

 

In 2014, volunteers contributed over 15,000 hours.  At the annual Volunteer Appreciation event, Ken Williams, MHA Board Chair (July 2013 – June 2015) stated that “Volunteers are an essential part of our MHA family and we are indebted to them for everything they do!”

If you have a few hours to spare, there are opportunities for you to become involved in your community.  At the MHA, we have a variety of volunteer positions available.
