Volunteer Program

ILR provides services using both staff and volunteers. Volunteers are essential to the continued success of the organization. They enable us to provide services without exceeding our budget.

Volunteers serve in many capacities at ILR, including the Board of Directors, peer counselors, and teachers. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with ILR, please contact Sarah Naomi Campbell, our volunteer coordinator, at 503-232-7411.

Vehicle donation program

ILR participates in the Volunteers of America vehicle donation program. If you have a car, motor home, boat, or motorcycle, running or not which you no longer use, please consider donating it to ILR through this program. We receive sixty percent of the sale value this is always a welcome addition to our operating budget. Call Sarah Naomi, 503-232-7411 or email if you are able to help! Thanks to the generous folks who have donated in the past.
