Our Volunteers

IAM has 14 paid staff; only 6 are full-time. Volunteers power our hand-up, not a handout, approach. They make it possible to provide assistance to the thousands of people we help every year.

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 Managers 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.
