Volunteers are a vital part of our agency. Volunteers helped to start The Society and have kept us going and growing since 1953! There are volunteer opportunities for individuals of all ages, however those volunteering at camp must be at least 16 years of age and those volunteering in the group homes should be at least 18 years of age. Share your time and talent with us as a volunteer at Camp Paradise, assist with activities in the residential program, Special Olympics, or work on special projects.
For volunteer opportunities, please contact Joan Long at 330-722-1900 or email [email protected].
