Volunteers

Three Cedars actively recruits, trains and educates 150 to 175 volunteers each year who give countless hours to our program. Volunteers contribute enormously in allowing us to provide a wider variety of services than would be possible with staff alone.

AHAT always seeks talented volunteers to fill nine board of director positions. Board members drive the organization’s strategic mission and participate in various committees.

To volunteer, contact 253-272-5533 or vol@aidshousingtacoma.org
