Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Community Help Centre is a volunteer-based, nonprofit organization that provides services, resources, education, training, and information to people who are in need of support and to people who are seeking volunteer opportunities in our community. With a drop-in center and 24-hour hotline as our foundation, we work to coordinate and deliver human services throughout Centre County.
Community Help Centre has served the Centre County community since 1971. Our original mission was to provide alcohol and other drug intervention, information, and education. Over the years, our services have expanded to include emotional support, crisis and basic needs intervention, referral and transfer to community resources, transportation to critical appointments, chore assistance, income tax assistance, and volunteer placement and referral.
When working with clients, we use an educational model through which we provide unbiased, non-judgmental support and education by validating feelings and positively reinforcing self-knowledge and interpersonal skills.
When making agency policy decisions, we use a consensus model through which decision-makers work together to reach general agreement regarding policy issues.
