Your Help is Needed . . . . Volunteer Today!


To show you care about someone with a brain disorder, to help breakdown the barriers to treatment and support, to help eliminate the stigma against those who suffer and to show you believe there is the possibility of HOPE and RECOVERY through education and SUPPORT, volunteer now.

Currently we are looking for volunteers to help our organization grow and continue with its mission.  We need help in all areas of our work from office support, teaching and supporting families, and untold other small tasks that will support our operation.  The next 1 1/2-2 hour orientation date is to be announced.
