Volunteers
Volunteers are the heart of ReachAble Task Force. They support paid staff to provide comprehensive assistance for disability affected individuals, their families and loved ones. Like our clients, volunteers come from every segment of the community. They share the common bond of providing informative care and counseling for those whose lives have been disabled.

Volunteering with ReachAble requires awareness and sensitivity to disability related issues and unconditional understanding of accessibility guidelines. Although compassion, concern and caring go a long way, some areas require volunteers with specific skills, time commitments and specialized knowledge.

Online volunteering allows for the participation of people who find onsite volunteering difficult or impossible because of time availability, home obligation, transportation difficulties or work schedule. Online volunteering at ReachAble is not meant as a replacement for face-to-face volunteering, and most individuals and organizations don't choose it over onsite service. Online volunteering also is not meant to take away paid positions at ReachAble. Online volunteering at ReachAble is meant to help us build the capacity, as well as to those that ReachAble serves. Online volunteering is just another way for people from various walks of life, all over the world, to connect with each other and be part of the Global Village.
