Volunteer at HACAP

Volunteers at HACAP play a vital role in building stronger communities. We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities, including both groups and individuals. A variety of volunteer opportunities and special projects are offered throughout the year to take part in. Every hour of volunteer time makes big a difference for the families we serve in Eastern Iowa. Thanks for your interest in volunteering with HACAP!
