Our mission is to improve the quality of life of individuals and their families living with MS and related neurological diseases through care, support, education and research. Volunteers at the MS Center give their time and talent to help assure that mission is fulfilled.
What Do Our Volunteers Do?
Volunteers at the MS Center find their place – something that especially interests them and matches with their time and talents, and join with other volunteers to provide valuable services including:
MS-Young Professional’s Network (MSYPN) is a networking, fundraising and social group of young adults who live with MS &/or care about MS. MSYPN hosts Drag Queen Bingo each year, has quarterly meetings with professional development opportunities, and members volunteer on committees and for signature events throughout the year.
Volunteering at the King Adult Day Enrichment Program (KADEP): Volunteers are needed at our specialized adult day program, which operates weekdays. This can include assisting a client with a craft project, helping serve lunch, helping a client in a wheelchair on a field trip into the community, and even teaching a class on a topic of your personal interest and skill.
Hydrotherapy Volunteers: Volunteers assist at our hydrotherapy (water exercise) programs held weekdays around the Metro area. This can include assisting clients in the dressing room, assisting with the hydrolic lifts to get clients in and out of the pool, assisting in the water, or assisting with refreshments following the exercise program.
Special Events Volunteers: You can volunteer to plan and implement one of our special events. This can include our annual Gala, MS4MS over the summer, third party fundraising events, and many more! Volunteers help with planning, fundraising, promoting, and with general coordination of these events.
Office Assistance: Work in the administrative office, assisting with mailings, event preparation, marketing efforts and general office needs.
