Find a VOAD: Contact Us

Organizing and running a VOAD requires a lot of helpers. There are always projects, workgroups, and many administrative needs you could support. Volunteer to help your local VOAD. 


Contact a VOAD near you and ask them how you can support VOAD.  


If there is no VOAD near you then go here to see the National VOAD LEAD program training modules to find out how to start one. Existing VOAD's can be a great support in helping get a local VOAD started.
