Volunteers are ordinary people with extraordinary hearts! The volunteer effort is a strong and vital component of AIDS Community Resources. Over the course of a year, more than 300 volunteers share their time and talents with ACR. Volunteer opportunities are available throughout ACR's nine county service area and in each of ACR's six offices. Volunteers serve in many ways and provide an array of needed services.
