Our Volunteers

HRCA relies on volunteers for a diverse range of skills, experience and knowledge. Our volunteers include business leaders, community advocates, parents, teens and individuals who want to give back and support their community. Time and again, we find that HRCA volunteers bring an unprecedented amount of passion and excitement to their work. They approach their tasks with a level of joy that is contagious. Here are a few examples of the many people at HRCA who have demonstrated why it’s so important for us to engage volunteers with diverse abilities and interests:

Erynn - is a Physician Assistant in Family Medicine and has been volunteering in the Therapeutic Recreation Hip Hop program for a year and a half. She enjoys getting to know the dancers and joking around with them. 

Sue - has been volunteering with the Youth Department for the past five years. She began her journey as a grandma of kiddos in our HRCA Toddler and Pre-School programs and wanted to continue to come read to our children, so she became a Douglas County Library reading volunteer. The kids love seeing her and hearing her read new books each week. 

Melanie - a college student, has been volunteering with Therapeutic Recreation for three years. One of her favorite moments was at the first triathlon on which she helped. "It was such a joy to cheer on the athletes as they participated and finished." On a personal note she adds, "Volunteering has changed my life. It has provided me happiness even in the most stressful times. It has taught me patience, flexibility, compassion, and humility."

Finance Committee members - individuals with expertise in finance and accounting, donate their time and knowledge working with staff to develop the annual budget.
