As the region's volunteer resource center, VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads' top priority is the health and safety of our community and our volunteers. We continue to mobilize healthy volunteers in accordance with Executive Order 55 which allows individuals to leave their residence to volunteer with organizations that provide charitable or social services.
We continue to support the needs of our partner organizations and communities they serve while taking precautions to protect the health of our community and volunteers based on the recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Virginia Department of Health.
