Our employees are working tirelessly to help those we serve throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Every week we share the faces of the dedicated frontline workers that are helping the families and individuals in our community who struggle in poverty. Our heroes continue to display their compassion and work ethic to help the most vulnerable populations, and this difficult time has truly shown us how blessed we are to have such an amazing group of people as part of the VOA family.
We empower people in our community to rise out of poverty, move toward self-reliance, and reach their full potential.
