Volunteer Connection

Volunteering matters!

Clackamas County Volunteer Connection is a vital link for volunteer engagement. We lead the community in volunteer activities which assist seniors, people with disabilities and residents lacking resources and in need of social services. Staff and volunteers work together to foster opportunities for residents to access services so residents can live healthier, more socially connected lives and continue to live independently. Our volunteers are critical in delivering and providing supplementary services to Clackamas County residents.
