Boca Helping Hands is the premiere social services agency in South Palm Beach County. Their large clean facility is an uplifting environment for the clients they serve and is a great place to volunteer. Many volunteers have served for years and have developed long lasting friendships with other volunteers.

I have been working in the field of domestic violence for about five years. For 4 years working with seniors, one who is 102 years old, taught me so much about life. If you are looking for a volunteer, I know that I could be do a wonderful job for you. I am a person empathic person, and all I want to do in this stage of my life is to give back

They're a small scale soup kitchen so it's a good place to start your volunteering. For me it got me on a roll. It's also a good one-off opportunity.
