Volunteer Opportunities
Your involvement can take many different forms: making a donation, volunteering your time to help those Veterans in need. "Remember, there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end." Scott Adams

Open Hands Outreach has opportunities for you to volunteer in every area of our Outreach. Volunteers are the heart of this organization and we could not do the work we do without our wonderful Volunteers. OHOP Volunteers help make sure "No Veteran Goes Unloved". There are many ways for YOU to get involved. Just contact us and we'd LOVE to meet you.

Get Involved:
You do not need to be a Veteran to volunteer. Programs are being developed and we need you to help. If you have experience teaching/mentoring/life coaching let us know. You pick the days and times you're available. 
We believe that it's our time to support these generations of America's Military and help meet the needs  among our Veterans.  Open Hands Outreach receives no government funding and depends solely on the patronage and contributions who wish to respond to the needs of our Veterans and their families.  Drop by the store, or call Tom Hunt, Outreach Director  (866) 721-6983.  IF INTERESTED CALL, DROP BY, FILL OUT THE VOLUNTEER FORM BELOW OR EMAIL

OHOP had the pleasure of delivering 150 personal care kits to the newly opened Apache Junction Veterans Center. They use their ATV and go out into the desert to... deliver the personal kits and offer to work with these homeless veterans.

It was great to meet all their volunteers. Chuck Byers, Senior, VSO Vietnam Veterans of America met with us and gave further direction on how to assist veterans coming to us.

Thank you all for inviting us to see your "digs" and hear your stories.
