VOLUNTEER

Volunteers bring a love for the cause, dedication, opportunities for growth, friendship, talent, shared experiences, a piece of their heart, and most importantly an extra set of hands. The passion our volunteers share for UMAR expands our ability to offer services, provide for our participants, and make an indelible impact in the community.

As Martin Luther King, Jr. once wrote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”.

HERE ARE A FEW WAYS YOU CAN “DO FOR OTHERS”:
