Volunteer Resources

HPS, Helping People Succeed employs a dedicated, competent staff who meet all licensing requirements and state and federal regulations. While we fully fund our organization, there is still work to be done and a variety of opportunities for volunteers. We welcome volunteers if they are year round or part time residents. Whether a person wants to help out with fund raising, administrative activities or direct involvement with the people we serve, we match the volunteer’s interest with an opportunity within HPS. Please see the next page for a partial list of volunteer opportunities.

As you become a volunteer, we have a specific volunteer training program that fully informs you as to the organization, the duties expected, and any other pertinent information—HPS staff are always present with volunteers for support, information and encouragement. When we meet again, we’ll have a copy of our Volunteer Manual for you.

Volunteers are welcome and encouraged. With your volunteer assistance, we will work as a team to make sure that everyday we are helping people succeed!
