VOLUNTEER SERVICES MISSION
The mission of St. Joseph’s Villa Volunteer Services Program is to offer meaningful opportunities for members of the community to help children with special needs learn to believe in themselves.
St. Joseph’s Villa has many unique and rewarding opportunities for individuals and groups to play an important role in furthering the success of children and families. The Villa offers a wide variety of opportunities and projects, located on campus and at satellite campuses. Also, special projects can be custom designed to match interests, talents, skills and abilities. All activities are located on the Villa campus, except where otherwise noted. Below, please find some of the exciting areas of opportunity:
