Thank your understanding until we are able to return to normal operations.  

Volunteers are the heart of IAM. Because of their compassionate gifts of time, IAM is able to help more than 12,000 people in great need in  Henderson County every year. We could not provide our extensive crisis services without them. 

The volunteer positions at IAM are crucial to our operations. Volunteers interview people coming in for assistance, manage files, are receptionists, work in the Food Pantry and Clothing Closet.  A typical volunteer shift is four hours a week; some volunteers work more often.

Our Volunteer Coordinators do the scheduling and arrange for substitutes when a volunteer needs, or wants, to be away for any period of time. We have over 300  volunteers, so you will meet many wonderful people. Some of our volunteers have been here 10, 15, 20, and even 25 years so we must be doing something right! We would love to talk to you about the volunteer opportunities at IAM and give you a personal tour of our facility. Call (828) 697-7029 to schedule a visit.

Volunteer shifts are 8:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Saturday.
