Volunteers are central to the mission of AHA. Now that our community has been vaccinated and COVID restrictions are easing up, our need for volunteers is increasing. There are a variety of opportunities for volunteers to assist our members.

No special expertise or experience is necessary to be an AHA volunteer. You only need a sincere interest in helping an older neighbor in our community; we’ll support you with the rest. New AHA volunteers often are surprised to learn how flexible we are-and how many different ways there are to help.
