News & Events
Volunteers of America of Western New York is one of 38 Volunteers of America affiliates across the United States. All of the affiliates combined serve more than 2 million people in 44 states. Since 1896, our highly-trained and dedicated staff, numbered at over 16,000, and volunteer corps have worked, not only to serve those most in need, but also have strived to innovate and transform the way in which these services are delivered. These human service leaders offer a wealth of expertise in their fields, whether it’s providing care and services to low-income seniors, developing and managing affordable housing, finding shelter and services for homeless veterans, or helping those in prison re-build family relationships that lead to successful lives.
We offer a variety of experts who can speak to the issues our organization faces everyday as one of the nation’s largest human service providers. The Volunteers of Western New York communication staff is available to help members of the media understand the work we do and tell the stories of the people we serve. If you are a member of the media, please call Rebecca Jaffarian at (585) 402-7255.
