Our organization was run entirely by volunteers when we were founded.  Now, over 30 years later, our volunteers still play an important role in pursuing our mission, whether it’s helping with a long-term project or assisting at one of our special events.  We are always in need of volunteers and welcome any time or talent you may be able to offer.  If you are interested in volunteering with our organization, please contact us at 646-731-9630 or email us at info@answerthecall.org to learn more.

In recent years, it’s been an honor to present the Volunteer of the Year Award to one or two volunteers who have dedicated a great deal of their time and talent to further our mission.  In one way or another, they have made our organization stronger and we have the utmost respect and appreciation for them.
