From our volunteers
"I chose ACCS because I love working with children and thought it would be a good start to social work before I declared it my major. I've really enjoyed working in the garden, and giving out Christmas gifts was quite fun. I would love to do more family visits!"
-Jody, ACCS Volunteer (2012-present)
"Initially, I chose to volunteer for a number of reasons, the primary reason being a requirement for school. As the hours for my program were met and I was introduced to the different aspects of ACCS, my heart has been energized with the care, commitment, and compassion I have seen from the agency out in the community. I have also seen the community and commitment behind the scenes, supporting and encouraging each other. It feels like a second family. I have seen children flourish, their smiles brighten, and families appreciate the services they receive. This was beautiful to observe."
-Teresa, ACCS Volunteer (2012-present)
"I chose to volunteer with ACCS because I love working with kids. I really enjoy volunteering with you guys. I've gotten to meet some really great kids as well as adults who work at ACCS and I have fun at each and every event."
