People Incorporated depends on the hard work and generosity of volunteers from within the community. Volunteers play an essential role in the success of our work through program support projects and by enriching the lives of the clients we serve. We have volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups. There are many ways you can support the work of People Incorporated through volunteering! In addition, your employer also may provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support – click here for more information!
