Thank you for your interest in assisting Positive Resource Center. As an organization founded in 1987 by volunteers, PRC still depends heavily on volunteer support to make our services available to the community.

There are many areas where we may need your volunteer assistance, including administrative office project support, fundraisers and special events.
