Our Volunteers

Elmwood’s community inclusion programming would not be possible without our dedicated volunteers!
Volunteers enhance the quality of life of the individuals we support by assisting, planning and delivering programs. In return, the volunteer has the unique opportunity for personal growth in the areas of coordination, disability supports and relationship development.

Elmwood seeks volunteers on a regular basis. If you are interested, click the Volunteer Now button!
