Birch Volunteers Make a Difference

People volunteer for many reasons. For some it is a way to contribute to a cause that is meaningful to them. For others it’s an opportunity to give back to the community while making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. And for some, it’s an opportunity to learn new skills or expand their knowledge. Regardless of their motivation, what unites them is the challenge and reward they find through the volunteer experience.

At Birch Family Services, we welcome volunteers to join us in serving the current and emerging needs of people with autism and developmental disabilities.
