“Volunteers are not paid – Not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless”

OAFC is a volunteer-driven organization with compassionate and skilled volunteers donating over 12,000 hours annually of combined service to the community. From our future healthcare workers to our veteran professionals ready to give back to the community, volunteers are the number one asset to the healing culture at Open Arms. Volunteers are medical professionals, patient advocates, administrative support, lab technicians, counselors, interpreters – there’s room for everyone! If you have gifts of time and talent, we invite you to tour the clinic, meet the team and consider joining our local mission to bring basic health care to our neighbors in need.
