Through direct contact and personal involvement with our community members, veterans and their families are made to feel welcomed and appreciated for their service to our country. Each veteran will be sponsored by a family of “certified” volunteers who are committed to providing a network of support to veterans and their families.
There are many ways you can volunteer to help. From serving at CVC events to moving veterans and their families into new homes, volunteers are always needed and appreciated. Together we can continue to ensure that the men and women who so valiantly defended the freedoms that we enjoy will be provided the 360 degrees of support they need to achieve the civilian lifestyle they deserve.
Please see the current list of volunteer needs within our organization and the Restoring Hope Thrift Store benefiting CVC below. If you are interested in making a difference through any of these positions or would like more information, please fill out the Volunteer Application at the bottom of the page. Thank you in advance for your consideration in serving our combat veterans and their families.
