    Community Re-Entry

    Men leaving incarceration face a wide variety of challenges. Volunteers of America in the Bay Area provides a variety of services to help these individuals start new, healthy lives, significantly reducing recidivism. These services enrich the lives of the men we serve through education, employment counseling, job training, parenting classes, life-skills workshops and more. At the same time, our community is improved by helping men transform into better husbands, fathers, employees and neighbors.

    Affordable Senior Housing

    For seniors, maintaining independence is very important. At Volunteers of America, we provide housing for seniors who want to live independent lifestyles where they can thrive and age in place. Our senior residents deserve the quality of life that they desire and our commitment to service-enriched housing offers them just that.
