Volunteer at Access

Volunteer at Access

ACCESS is always looking for and accepting new volunteers! Volunteers allow the shelter to get much needed work completed that supports our operations and otherwise, may not get done. We accept students, individuals, groups and businesses into our volunteer program. Some of our current volunteer needs are below. We also welcome those interested in volunteering in other capacities to contact us regarding their interests and/or needs. These opportunities can be scheduled on a mutually convenient day and time for the volunteer/s and ACCESS. Please consider joining the ACCESS Volunteer Team!
