Volunteering at Resilience

Thank You!

Our agency has a wide range of volunteer opportunities that can accommodate even the busiest of schedules, and no gift of time or talent is too small. We will train you!

Due to the sensitive nature of our work and level of confidentiality needed to protect our clients, staff and volunteers, all training and volunteer forms must be completed prior to your placement as a volunteer.

If you’re interested in learning more, please contact Sherry Martens (616-494-1747) to schedule an interview with a tour of the agency with a short overview of our programs and services.
